Overview


Nueva Escocia, inicios del siglo xx. Dora Rare es la primera mujer en su familia después de cinco generaciones de hijos varones. Muy pronto Marie Babineau, la vieja partera de la zona, verá en ella signos de un don especial, y con el tiempo la muchacha irá entrando en el mundo de la anciana y de las mujeres; un mundo de embarazos no siempre deseados, remedios antiguos y oraciones, infusiones y milagros… La primera vez que Dora siente el palpitar de un recién nacido en sus brazos sabe que la fuerza de la vida la ha arrastrado sin remedio, y ya no tiene elección. De la mano de Marie aprenderá los secretos y los peligros de este ofi cio maravilloso. La construcción de un nuevo centro de maternidad, en el que se promete a las mujeres dar a luz sin dolor y en unas condiciones modernas e higiénicas, será un cambio para todo el mundo. Acusada de brujería y señalada por los hombres de su comunidad, Dora deberá emplear todas sus fuerzas para proteger la sabiduría que las mujeres han llevado siempre consigo. La casa de la luna es un inolvidable relato sobre la lucha de las mujeres por mantener el control sobre sus propios cuerpos, y un canto para que custodien la llama de lo ancestral en un mundo cada vez más deshumanizado.
