Overview

El día de su muerte, Julio Carrión, poderoso hombre de negocios cuya fortuna se remonta a los años del franquismo, deja a sus hijos una sustanciosa herencia pero también muchos puntos oscuros de su pasado y de su experiencia en la Guerra Civil y en la División Azul. En su entierro, en febrero de 2005, su hijo Álvaro, el único que no ha querido dedicarse a los negocios familiares, se sorprende por la presencia de una mujer joven y atractiva, a la que nadie había visto antes y que parece delatar aspectos desconocidos de la vida íntima de su padre.

Raquel Fernández Perea, por su parte, hija y nieta de exiliados en Francia, lo sabe en cambio casi todo sobre el pasado de sus progenitores y abuelos, a los que ha preguntado sobre su experiencia de la guerra y del exilio. Para ella sólo una historia permanece sin aclarar: la de una tarde en que acompañó a su abuelo, recién regresado a Madrid, y visitaron a unos desconocidos con los que intuyó que existía una deuda pendiente.

Álvaro y Raquel están condenados a encontrarse porque sus respectivas historias familiares, que son también la historia de muchas familias en España, desde la Guerra Civil hasta la Transición, forman parte de sí mismos y explican además sus orígenes, su presente. También porque, sin saberlo, se sentirán atraídos sin remedio.

Con El corazón helado Almudena Grandes nos entrega sin duda su novela más ambiciosa, en la que traza a través de dos familias un panorama emocionante de la historia reciente de nuestro país, y también del conflicto de las nuevas generaciones con la memoria.

    Una obra magnífica

    Almudena Grandes nos traza a través de la historia de dos familias, aspectos de la historia reciente Espanola y de la Guerra Civil en concreto. La obra, asímismo, sabe reflejar con increible acierto, los irremediables conflictos que surgieron entre las posteriores generaciones con la memoria del horror y las perdidas que la guerra produjo. Una novela, que aunque de caracteres ficticios, es tan real como la misma historia de Espana. Se la recomiendo. M.J.

    best historical novel about the spanish civil war

    In this book Almudena Grandes braids the life of two families from different political and social strata, from the early 1930's of the the spanish elected government, thru a fratricidal war that left behind a people divided, fearful, hungry and with a sense of hopeless abandonment,ruled by a dictator who took retributions. Thousands of men and women killed, tens of thousands fled to France, Europe and South America.The ones who stayed, lived in constant fear.Most had hoped that after the WWII ended, the Allies would come help stamp out the other fascist dictator left in Europe.Francisco Franco was the Generalisimo from 1939 thru 1975. MS Grandes's descriptions of the characters is detailed,tender and rich in adjectives that add color, and sucks you into a time of ideals you died for, dreams you hoped to live for,and the convoluted roads these characters take to come full circle one or two generations later into the year 2006.Its brilliant,it informs us about a time we know little about and are now starting to hear the real stories, the two sides of all stories, allowing at the end, for each of us to ponder what would I have done.
