Dec 29, Laura rated it it was ok I gave up on this book about halfway through. Or maybe it just developed quite differently from how I had expected the plot to unfold. The story centers around Catalina who is barely 15 when she marries a general at least 15 years her senior whom anyone with half a braincell can tell is going to turn out to be a power-obsessed narcissistic jerk. In case you have any hopes for this guy, he establishes himself pretty I gave up on this book about halfway through.

In case you have any hopes for this guy, he establishes himself pretty quickly as that guy that you would never let a friend or a daughter of yours marry. Catalina does marry him, though, and she finds herself quickly immersed into a world of shady politics as the general ascends to the position of the governor of Puebla, Mexico. I just wanted to see her develop in a way that was introspective and integrated. I wanted to see her triumph over this guy and become a better person.

Instead, she just manipulates her own position in the situation and crafts her own unique brand of politic intrigue. Catalina is very sentimental and actually misses him. In my opinion, I would have preferred to see the general shot after the first pages so that we could see Catalina blossom post-psycho husband. Maybe not Page by page it reminded me of how much I love Mexican history.

The life of Catalina makes so much sense to me and reminds me of the old stories my own grandmother, who would be a contemporary of Catalina, would talk about. Marrying a much more older man at the age of 15 was common practice at the time, but the way she evolved One of the best Latin American works I have come across. Marrying a much more older man at the age of 15 was common practice at the time, but the way she evolved into a modern, rich, Mexican woman with all the complexities of the love-hate relationship she had with Andres Asencio is just fascinating.

No matter how anyone might interpret her relationship with el general, I envied their complicity. The type that exists only in long lasting marriages. This is not a romantic novel, neither is it for those who seek romanticism. The description of their life together is visceral. You will not meet here the heroine that grows up to stand up to the shenanigans of a classic Mexican cacique. On the contrary, you will see her creating her persona around it and at times shielding herself and her children by living in the most pure form of denial.

Great era novel. Though it was in my to read priorities for year, I can now see why this novel was what it was when it was first published. A must read for anyone with a passion, melancholy and understanding of old fashioned values
