Overview

De la autora de la muy aclamada Soñar en cubano, viene una hechizante novela: la historia suntuosa de dos hermanas cubanas que encarnan el romanticismo excesivo y el pragmatismo severo de la diáspora cubana. Constancia Agüero se fue de Cuba y obtuvo éxito en Nueva York. Mujer de negocios, ella es una vendedora sin igual de productos de belleza y por eso hasta gana un Cádillac rosado. Reina Agüero, una electricista cuyas manos hacen la luz y deshacen a los hombres, se quedó en Cuba.

Ahora, estas dos mujeres deleitosamente excéntricas se reúnen en Miami después de treinta años de ausencia. Y de sus vidas entrelazadas, Cristina García hilvana tantas historias que hay tela para ocho novelas ordinarias: el suicidio de un padre y la muerte misteriosa de una madre; una epidemia de visiones de la Virgen María; la Luna que fecunda a una mujer; la poderosa fuerza de los santos afrocubanos. Sensual, mágica, graciosa, Las hermanas Agüero es una obra maestra al estilo de Isabel Allende y Gabriel García Márquez.

    Sisters

    Another Garcia book with tropical atmosphere and wonderful details. The author's focus on the two sisters makes a tight novel which is best read over a shorter period of time than her more involved novels. My heart ached when the sisters were reunited. Two sisters who were so different but connected by the strongest link - their shared mother. Finding out that their fathers were different was no surprise to the reader but Garcia reveals the mother's past slowly thereby perserving at all cost the Aguero family dignity. For me this author's uniqueness lies in her deftly beautiful writing style and her formation of characters who are intensely proud and enduringly weak as humans at the same time.
