Overview


Luis Campos es un caballero maduro, casado y satisfecho con la vida que ha llevado. Sólo un recuerdo resulta teñido de nostalgia, el de Eloísa, una antigua amante de juventud, que un día cualquiera se materializa en una estupenda mujer de carne y hueso. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Olor a rosas invisibles is the story of two lovers who meet again after 40 years. Luicé Campos is an older gentleman, married, and at peace with the life he’s chosen to live. His only ghost is the nostalgic memory of Eloísa, a lover from his youthful and carefree days, a lover who one day will materialize in the form of an amazing flesh and blood woman. First come the letters, then the telephone calls and finally the stolen moments in foreign cities —encounters that imbue the novel with the sweet perfume of nostalgia, the elusive scent of two people who, perhaps, fear the dawn of their lives. Olor a rosas invisibles is a love story, but it is also an examination of the masculine side of adultery as well as the embodiment of the uncomfortable feelings of envy some of us experience when faced with the joy of two lovers.
