Overview

Perdonar means to forgive. To forgive is to let go. The novel Perdonar is the tender and exciting story of a woman who lets go of her past, and courageously begins to grow and thus transform her very life. The striking scenery of Peru, Cuba, Costa Rica and New York provides a dynamic background for the intriguing people she meets during this journey of maturation. Caught between two generations - on the one hand, ladies raised in a traditional society, and on the other, rebellious young girls - the heroine must hew out her own interior space and redefine herself. Giving up, what at first, seems the very basis of her identity, she takes the first step to defining herself by her own terms, and, in finding herself, she renews an authentic connection with others.
No matter at what point on your own path you find yourself, this story will encourage you to go one step further.

Editorial Reviews

Alisa Stojanovic
Perdonar has taken me on a trip to South America with its characters, their growth and their problems. The story is engaging, true and exciting. Sienna, the daughter of the central heroine, eager for new experiences, planned to travel and learn about new cultures and countries, and above all about (her)self. While I was reading Perdonar, I had that privilege.
Emilija Radosevic
The need to distance ourselves from our everyday life to better comprehend some essential facts about ourselves and our life is the backbone of Perdonar. Packing our concerns that cloud our views, in bags is sometimes the only way to escape into a yourself, but not run away from the reality of life. The atmosphere of South America, its history and the mentality of its people are wonderfully presented.
Viseslav Simic
Perdonar is bursting with life experiences, emotions, faith and hope of a woman, mother, good fairy, a dreamer and a traveler, who is slowly becoming a rarity, because the belief that the fulfilment of a dream is available to everyone slowly loses its principle when there is no one left who knows how to dream. The heroine is a woman of whom all women who cannot do what they want to will be envious, as well as those without power to dream what they would like to do, even if they could do it.
