The Invisible Mountain

by Carolina De Robertis
£9.99   paperback  HarperCollins Publishers (2010)

The Invisible Mountain by Carolina De Robertis The sweep of a century, the hand of history, three women whose lives will never be the same again.
 
As the twentieth century dawns, so begins one of the most dramatic periods in the history of South America. Women are emancipated, Che Guevara and Fidel Castro free Cuba, the Perons take power in Argentina, and three generations of Firielli women are to live, love, and fight for their independence and freedom.
 
Pajarita is the founder of the dynasty, born into a rural village and constantly chafing against its narrow confines. A love-match with a circus performer offers her escape, but she is trapped in a cage of another sort when her husband becomes a monster. Her spirited daughter, Eva, enters a world shaken by revolution. Fleeing childhood abuse, and alienated from her mother, she heads to Buenos Aires, but the glittering circles she moves in cannot erase the memories of her past. Her daughter, Salomé, driven by political passion becomes a guerrilla fighter, but her idealism turns to tragedy when she is captured, and brutalised.
 
From bohemian Buenos Aires to the hills of Rio de Janeiro; from tangos to demonstrations; from the broad sweep of history to the intimate lives of the Fierelli family, The Invisible Mountain traverses a changing South America, in which some things - love, family, hope - continue forever.
