First historical novel based on real events by Juan Manuel Jimenez, published in 2017 by Encasa Books, “La flor de los celindos”, and on the historical period from 1875 to 1975 in the Axarquía of Malaga.
Bound in illustrated paperback, format 15 x 22 cm. 454 pages. New copy, brand new.
The author sets his gaze on the roots of an ancient conflict, and locates his characters in Canillas de Aceituno and Sedella, on the slopes of “Tejea”, at the foot of “la Maroma”, in the wild mountain ranges of that forgotten region.
In the last decades of the 19th century and the first decades of the 20th, Adela Marin, a young widow, had to raise her four children by working hard in the fields and also suffering the abuses and arbitrariness of the local chief, a puppet of the Larios House. Juan and Manuel, Adela’s two oldest children, then take very different directions in their lives.
“The flower of the celindos” is a tale of chiaroscuro, like life. A novel of hope and reunion, of recovered memory and life-giving forgiveness. A book about the history of Malaga and the Axarquía that, surely, will leave no one indifferent.
