Sobre El Autor

Margaret Rumer Godden was born Dec. 10, 1907, in Sussex, England. She was nine months old when her family moved to India, where her father ran a shipping line. She returned to London at age 20 to learn how to teach dance to children, and opened a school back in India. Returning to England while she mostrar más was pregnant, she wrote her first book, "Chinese Puzzle," published in 1936. Her marriage to a stockbroker, Laurence Sinclair Foster, ended in 1941, leaving her penniless. In an effort to pay off her former husband's debts, Godden moved her family into a mountain cottage where she ran a school, made herbal teas for sale, and wrote books. Another novel of India, "The River," published in 1949, was one of her most acclaimed books and was made into a film by Jean Renoir in 1951. She returned to England to stay in 1945. Rumer Godden was the author of more than 60 books, including novels, short story collections, poetry, plays and non-fiction. She published her 21st novel, "Cromartie vs. the God Shiva," in 1997. Rumer Godden died a year later on November 8, 1998, in Thornhill, Scotland, at the age of 90. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

Reseñas

A través de la brisa fresca de las montañas del Himalaya cerca de Darjeeling, el viejo palacio brilla como una joya antigua. Cuando era la sede oficial del harén del General, las damas podían ser vistas pasear por las terrazas envueltas en sus ricas vestiduras disfrutando del viento de la noche. Por la noche la música llegaba flotando a través de las aldeas y continuaba hasta altas horas de la madrugada. Ahora, sin embargo, el hijo del General ha cedido el palacio a las Hermanas de María. Ellas han comenzado a trabajar en el huerto y han abierto una escuela y un dispensario para la gente de las montañas. Sin embargo, las monjitas no pueden hacer salir adelante su proyecto sin la ayuda del señor Dean, un descreído, arrogante y particular inglés que conoce a todo el mundo en la región. «Todos los tópicos eran aplicables a él: ojos azules, rostro encantador; la piel tersa y bronceada y los labios rojos como los de los niños irladeses» nos dice Godden de este pesonaje que hará de catalizador de los más oscuros secretos de cada una de las hermanas. Clodagh, la superiora y su desamor cubierto de amargura; Ruth, desequilibrada e inquietante; Miel, que ama a los niños con la fuerza de una madre yerma... Unos deseos ocultos y potenciados por la imponente montaña que ejerce una fuerza que las reprimidas inglesas no consiguen comprender y contra la que tendrán que luchar.… (más)
