Summary

Claudia Casanova despliega en su nueva novela la hermosa sencillez de una historia narrada con exquisita sensibilidad. Elegante y sutil, emocionará a los lectores con la fuerza y delicadeza de obras como Seda o La joven de la perla.

La auténtica belleza reside siempre en los detalles. En el brillo de una gota de rocío, en la mirada curiosa de una joven, o en los pétalos de una flor sin nombre.

Alba, curiosa e inteligente, pasa las horas recorriendo el valle con su colección de flores, que cataloga con minuciosidad. Su hermana la acompaña siempre, en busca, a su vez, de los ejemplares de insectos más bellos y sorprendentes.

Hasta el pequeño pueblo en el que su acomodada familia pasa los veranos llega un día Heinrich Wilkomm, un renombrado botánico centroeuropeo. La pasión por la ciencia que comparte con Alba pronto evolucionará hacia algo más prohibido, secreto e inolvidable que, como la flor que ambos nombran por primera vez, tendrá raíces tan profundas que será capaz de crecer entre las piedras.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

In this new novel Claudia Casanova unfolds the simplicity of a story narrated with great sensitivity. Elegant and subtle, this story will thrill readers with the strength and gracefulness as works like Silk or Girl with the Pearl Earring.
 
Real beauty will always be found in the small details: in the glow of a drop of water, in the curious gaze of a young woman, or in the petals of a nameless flower.
 
Alba, an intelligent and curious girl, spends her time exploring the town with her collection of flowers, which she logs and categorizes with care and precision. Her sister always goes along with her, looking, in turn, for the most beautiful and surprising insects she can find.
 
One day Heinrich Wilkomm, a renowned European botanist arrives in the small town where her well-to-do family spends the summers. The passion for science that he shares with Alba will soon evolve into something forbidden, secret, and unforgettable that, just like the flower they both name for the first time, will have roots so deep that it will be able to grow among rocks.
