Item description for La mestiza de Pizarro by Alvaro Vargas Llosa...

In this passionate work, Alvaro Vargas Llosa makes the reader feel the beating heart of Francisca, the mestiza daughter of Pizarro, product of a love between the conqueror and the Inca princess Ins Huaylas. Vargas Llosa helps to uncover what Francisca was feeling on the inside while on the outside significant events were happening in the history of Modern Spain and the conquest of Peru: divisions within the native people, and confrontations between the conquerors.

Description in Spanish:

Ms que cronista o historiador, confidente casi, lvaro Vargas Llosa nos lleva en esta obra apasionante a sentir el latido del corazn de Francisca, la hija mestiza de Pizarro -fruto de los amores del conquistador con la princesa inca Ins Huaylas- y a comprender lo mucho que le pasaba por dentro mientras suceda por fuera lo que cuentan los historiadores.

A lo largo de los aos, ante los ojos de la joven heredera de dos mundos se suceden episodios capitales en la historia de la Espaa Moderna y la conquista del Per: la divisin indgena, los enfrentamientos entre los conquistadores, el riesgo de sedicin para la corona espaola, la constitucin del poder virreinal...

Francisca es enviada a Espaa para evitar que pudiera convertirse en bandera de quienes se enfrentan a la Corona espaola. Y ya en la Pennsula, contrae un inesperado matrimonio y se entregar a la reconstitucin del honor y el patrimonio de los Pizarro. Su destino final es sorprendente.
