Présentation de l'éditeur :

They say Frasquita knows magic, that she is a healer with occult powers, that perhaps she is a sorcerer. She does indeed posses a remarkable gift, one that has been passed down to the women in her family for generations. From rags, off-cuts, and rough fabric she can create gowns and other garments so magnificent, so alive, that they are capable of masking any kind defect or deformity (and pregnancies!). They bestow a breathtaking and blinding beauty on whoever wears them.

But Fasquita's gift makes others in her small Andalusian village jealous. And to make matters worse, Frasquita is an adulteress (it matters not that her betrayal came at her husband's behest after he gambled on her honor, and lost, at a cock fight). She is hounded and eventually banished from her home. What follows is an extraordinary adventure as she travels across southern Spain all the way to Africa with her five children in tow. Her exile becomes a quest for a better, for herself and her daughters, whom she hopes can escape the ironclad fate of her family of sorcerers., whom she hopes will  life for her daughters, one in which the family  in an attempt to give her daughters a chance at living another kind of life.

The Threads of the Heart possesses the lyric beauty of a prose poem and the narrative power of a myth.

Description du livre Europa Editions, United States, 2013. Paperback. Etat : New. Language: English. Brand new Book. A nineteenth century Spanish seamstress flees her village for Morocco in a novel with "a magical realist aspect . . . An epic sweep and a richness of characterization" (The Independent). They say Frasquita is a healer with occult powers; that perhaps she is even a sorceress. Indeed, she has a remarkable gift, one that has been passed down to the women in her family for generations. From mere rags, she can create gowns and other garments so magnificent, so alive, that they mask any defect or deformity. They bestow a blinding beauty on whoever wears them. But Frasquita's gift makes others in her small Andalusian village jealous. And when her gambling husband brings misfortune on their family, Frasquita travels across southern Spain and into Africa with her five children in tow. Her exile becomes a quest for a better life, and a way to free her daughters from the fate of her family of sorcerers. "Like the beautiful frescoes of García Márquez, this novel is a marvelous and lyrical fairytale bursting with colorful characters"--La Revue Littéraire Des Copines.
