Description

Viaje a través delos pirineos junto a dos amantes en una busqueda espiritual sin tiempo, y descubra los prufundos secretos del amor y la vida en esta nueva novela comovedora, estimulante y mágica escrita a la manera de su aclamado libro El alquimista, por el incomparable narrador Paulo Coelho.

En todas las historias de amor siempre hay algo que nos acerca a la eternidad y a la esencia de la vida, pues guardan todos los secretos del mundo. Que sucede cuando la timidez impide el desarrollo de un amor adolescente? Y que cuando, once años después, el destino reune a los amantes? En ese lapso, a ella la vida le enseñó a ser fuerte y a ocultar sus sentimientos.

En cuanto a él, se convirtió a la religión para refugiarse de sus luchas internas, ahora es un maestro espiritual, quien, se dice, realiza milagros. Juntos emprenderan un viaje cargado de dificultades. Sin embargo en el río de piedra encuentran la manera de discutir muchas de las grandes interrogantes de la vida y de renovar su singular relación.

A parable set against the backdrop of the French Pyrenees follows an independent but restless young woman whose life is changed forever by an encounter with a childhood friend, now a mesmerizing seminarian and rumored miracle worker.

From Paulo Coelho, author of the international bestseller El alquimista, comes a poignant, richly poetic story that reflects the depth of love and life. Rarely does adolescent love reach its full potential, but what happens when two young lovers reunite after eleven years? Time has transformed Pilar into a strong and independent woman, while her devoted childhood friend has grown into a handsome and charismatic spiritual leader. She has learned well how to bury her feelings . . . and he has turned to religion as a refuge from his raging inner conflicts. Now they are together once again, embarking on a journey fraught with difficulties, as long-buried demons of blame and resentment resurface after more than a decade. But in a small village in the French Pyrenees, by the waters of the River Piedra, a most special relationship will be reexamined in the dazzling light of some of life's biggest questions.
