THE KEY OF THE STARS
In 2012, at the harshest moments of the Greek crisis, the young Rebeca Benveniste is completely alone and on the verge of eviction. His adored nona, his grandmother, has died, and with his studies of Hispanic Philology he cannot find any work to sustain himself. He then decided to travel to the small village of Alpartazgo, in the province of Zaragoza, where his Sephardic ancestors came from over five hundred years ago.
In the end of the 15th century, Vida Benveniste, the daughter of the butcher of the jueria de Alpartazgo, befriends Leonor de Lanuza, who belongs to the most powerful local noble family. Both are intrepid and intelligent and do not accept the constraints that mark them when professing different religions. Their lives will inevitably run through very different beds, but over and above creeds and social impositions their friendship will always prevail, loose with deep feelings.Two vibrant and luminous stories that are intertwined, filled with small and great stories of love, sex, friendship, humor, uprooting and motherhood. Because female friendship and sorority are the driving force of our lives.
