Reviews - What do customers think about Una Mujer Dificil /A Widow for One Year?

El pasado pesa  Jan 29, 2007
Una mujer difícil cuenta con personajes perfectamente estructurados (cosa que para uno como lector es una delicia). La historia gira alrededor de la protagonista(Ruth Cole), quien antes de haber nacido pierde en un accidente de carro a sus dos hermanos mayores. Estos se convierten en "fantasmas" que persiguen a todos los miembros de la familia pero especialmente a Ruth quien tendrá que cargar con lo que su ausencia implicó en la vida familiar. Ruth nace y queda en manos de un padre exitoso como escritor de cuentos para niños (y también acostándose con muchas mujeres) y una madre con una belleza deslumbrante,indiferente con su esposo, aparentemente frívola y aislada del presente. Ruth es abandonada por su madre y apartir de ese momento comienza a desarrollarse la historia de "una mujer dificil", quien lucha por recobrar algo de su pasado a través de la escritura y de la confrontación con un hombre que estuvo presente en su casa durante un INTENSO verano. Han pasado más de 30 años, los dos son adultos y ahora él retorna para ayudar a despejar la neblina. Esta es una novela que se disfruta más después de la mitad del libro.
