About this audiobook

Elizabeth Acevedo, ganadora del National Book Award, regresa con su primera novela para un público adulto: una magnífica oda a la sabiduría del linaje femenino con un toque de fantasía caribeña

Por la sangre de las mujeres Marte corre una magia que les concede dones especiales. Creciendo en República Dominicana, y luego al migrar a Nueva York, las hermanas Flor, Matilde, Pastora y Camila aprendieron a valerse de ellos, y de la fuerza de su vínculo, para protegerse de las hostilidades del mundo. Pero también, a callarse sus deseos, temores y anhelos más profundos. Por eso, cuando Flor anuncia que va a celebrar un velorio en vida, el matriarcado se conmociona: su don es predecir la muerte, pero ella se niega a admitir si ha llegado su hora. O la de alguien más.

Sabiduría familiar sigue a las Marte a través de este período liminal, mientras se preparan para el velorio de Flor y lo que vendrá después. Con excepcional maestría, y su inconfundible y deslumbrante voz poética, Elizabeth Acevedo teje la epopeya de las Marte: una familia sinigual que, como cualquier otra, deberá romper el conjuro del silencio para empezar a escribir su futuro.

«Un relato laberíntico en torno a la sororidad y el caos del amor... Sabiduría familiar, después de todo, no trata acerca de prepararse para la muerte, sino de deleitarse en la oportunidad de vivir». —NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

———

From bestselling, National Book Award–winning author Elizabeth Acevedo comes her first novel for adults, a magnificent ode to the wisdom of the female lineage with a touch of Caribbean fantasy.

In the blood of the Marte women runs a magic that bestows upon them special gifts. Growing up in the Dominican Republic, and later migrating to New York, sisters Flor, Matilde, Pastora, and Camila learned to harness these gifts and the strength of their bond to protect themselves from the hostilities of the world. But they also learned to keep their deepest desires, fears, and longings to themselves. When Flor announces that she's going to hold a living wake, the matriarchy is shaken: her gift is predicting death, but she refuses to admit if her time has come. Or someone else's.

Family Lore follows the Marte women through this liminal period as they prepare for Flor's wake and what will come after. With exceptional mastery and her inimitable and incandescent poetic voice, Elizabeth Acevedo weaves an indelible portrait of sisters and cousins, aunts and nieces—the journey of a unique family that, like any other, must break the spell of silence to begin writing their future.
