Read full description of the books:



Década de los setenta en una pequeña ciudad de California. "Bean" Holladay tiene doce años y su hermana Liz quince cuando su madre las abandona "para encontrarse a sí misma" y triunfar en la música. Aunque les deja dinero para subsistir un mes o dos, las pequeñas tienen miedo de acabar siendo recogidas por los servicios sociales y deciden viajar a Virginia, donde su tío Tinsley vive en la decadente mansión que ha sido la casa de su familia durante generaciones. Pero el pequeño pueblo en el que nacieron ha cambiado mucho, y la vida es muy diferente. Ante la escasez de dinero, las hermanas tendrán que hacer pequeños trabajos para Jerry Maddox, el poderoso capataz de la algodonera. Las niñas deberán adaptarse para volver a empezar a la vez que descubrirán la historia oculta de quién es su padre y por qué su madre tuvo que abandonar Virginia. Jeannette Walls vuelve a conmover con una novela sobre la familia, la amistad y el triunfo de la justicia frente a la adversidad. Y sobre personas que encuentran un modo de amar a los demás y al mundo pese a todos sus defectos.

English Description

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Glass Castle, Jeannette Walls’ gripping new novel that "transports us with her powerful storytelling...She contemplates the extraordinary bravery needed to confront real-life demons in a world where the hardest thing to do may be to not run away" (O, The Oprah Magazine).

It is 1970 in a small town in California. “Bean” Holladay is twelve and her sister, Liz, is fifteen when their artistic mother, Charlotte, takes off to find herself, leaving her girls enough money to last a month or two. When Bean returns from school one day and sees a police car outside the house, she and Liz decide to take the bus to Virginia, where their widowed Uncle Tinsley lives in the decaying mansion that’s been in Charlotte’s family for generations.

An impetuous optimist, Bean soon discovers who her father was, and hears stories about why their mother left Virginia in the first place. Money is tight, and the sisters start babysitting and doing office work for Jerry Maddox, foreman of the mill in town, who bullies his workers, his tenants, his children, and his wife. Liz is whip-smart—an inventor of word games, reader of Edgar Allan Poe, nonconformist. But when school starts in the fall, it’s Bean who easily adjusts, and Liz who becomes increasingly withdrawn. And then something happens to Liz in the car with Maddox.

Jeannette Walls has written a deeply moving novel about triumph over adversity and about people who find a way to love each other and the world, despite its flaws and injustices.
