Summary
"The Laguna women suffer from an odd affliction: each generation is condemned to tragic love affairs and to give birth only to girls who are unable to escape the cruel fate of their mothers. One fateful hunting season in their small Castilian town, a young landowner arrives and begins a passionate affair with Clara Laguna, the latest in the family line, daughter of a one-eyed woman known as the Laguna witch.He leaves her pregnant with yet another daughter, but the seeds of change are sown. Eventually the long-awaited son--Santiago, the great-great grandson of Clara--is born. A window of hope is opened, but is the curse truly over? Introducing a cast of memorable, eccentric characters, from a bearded, mute female cook to the local do-gooding priest and the indelible Laguna women themselves, The house of impossible loves is a feat of imaginative storytelling that marks the arrival of talented new novelist"--Dust jacket
