about this book

Laudada como una obra central de la literatura latinoamericana, esta novela asombrosa, de una de las más prominentes mujeres de letras de Puerto Rico, es a la vez una rebosante saga multigeneracional y una historia mágica de la isla. En una hermosa mansión con vista a la laguna de Alamares, Isabel Montfort está escribiendo la crónica de su familia. Es un relato de aventura e intriga, de inmigrantes españoles y corsos, de esclavos africanos, de política sexual y de luchas políticas, de maridos autoritarios y esposas que ingeniosamente subvierten esa autoridad. La casa de la laguna es una novela llena de encanto e invención, poblada por personajes de una gran vitalidad.
