Description

With a well-concocted plot and an atmosphere of intense pain and guilt, this novel pushes the main characters limits with precision and psychology. Perhaps God rolls the dice with destiny, scattering the pieces of a puzzle that always ends up back together one way or another; or maybe it s chance that snatches from people that which they love most; or it could be that everything that happens is simply the result of people s actions. These are the thoughts that torment Eduardo, a painter for whom nothing makes sense anymore after the death of his wife and daughter. Nothing, that is, until a famous cellist gives him the biggest challenge of his life: to paint the portrait of a man of an uncertain past. Accepting the assignment triggers a spiral of emotions and tragic events that inevitably involve the people around him. With each brush stroke, Eduardo opens doors that were meant to stay shut doors which, once open, can never be closed again."Con una trama bien urdida y un ambiente de dolor y culpa descarnada, esta novela desborda los limites de sus protagonistas con precision y psicologia. Quizas Dios juega a los dados con el destino, desperdigando las piezas de un rompecabezas que siempre vuelve a unirse de un modo u otro; o tal vez sea el azar el que les arrebate a las personas aquello que mas aman; o puede que todo lo que ocurre sea simplemente el resultado de los actos de la gente. Estos son los pensamientos que atormentan a Eduardo, un pintor para quien nada tiene sentido tras la muerte de su mujer y su hija. Nada, es decir, hasta que una famosa violoncelista le encarga el mayor reto de su vida: pintar el retrato de un hombre de pasado incierto. Aceptar el encargo desencadena una espiral de emociones y acontecimientos tragicos que succiona inevitablemente a cuantas personas le rodean. Con cada pincelada, Eduardo abre puertas que habria sido mejor mantener cerradas puertas que, una vez abiertas, nunca podran volver a estar cerradas.""show more
