LA CASA DE LOS AMORES IMPOSIBLES by Cristina López Barrio

Castilia, early twentieth century.
When village girl Clara Laguna falls in love with an Andalusian landowner, her mother warns her of the curse of the Laguna women: they are comdemned to forever have their hearts broken and to give birth only to girls destined to perpetuate the same cruel fate.
And sure enough, shortly after Clara gets pregnant, the Adalusian runs off. Enraged and blinded by hatred, she goes on to open a brothel on the outskirts of town, where she gives birth to a little girl...
What will it take to bring an end to the curse? Would the birth of a boy bring salvation to the Laguna descendants?
A page-turner bringing magic realism to Castilia, this is a tale of love, passion and tragedy.
