Fans of historical fiction might enjoy this family saga encompassing the lives of three women set amid the history of Uruguay through the 20th century. Provocative, heartbreaking and ultimately life-affirming, The Invisible Mountain is a poignant celebration of the potency of familial love, the will to survive in the most hopeless of circumstances, and, above all, the fierce, fortifying connection between mother and daughter. Carolina De Robertis was raised in England, Switzerland, and California by Uruguayan parents. This is her first novel.
All are welcome at our informal monthly book discussion.
