Ildefonso Falcones will publish in summer

Ildefonso Falcones will bring a new novel to bookstores this summer. It will be on August 30 when his new work, Esclava de libertad, will see the light of the hand of the Grijalbo publishing house. A novelty that will arrive simultaneously in digital format and audiobook. Rosa dels Vents will publish its translation into Catalan.

The novel will focus on the struggle for freedom of two black women in different times: colonial slave-owning Cuba and 21st-century Spain. The first is Kaweca, a girl who has the ability to commune with Yemayá, a fickle goddess who sometimes grants her the gift of healing and gives her the strength to lead her race brothers in her purpose. .

In Madrid there will be Lita, a young mulatto woman who, despite having studies, will be forced to turn to the Marquises of Santadoma because of job insecurity. She will seek an opportunity in the banking they own, but as she immerses herself in the company and their past, she will discover the origins of the fortune and embark on a legal battle.

Two women united against racism and injustice, who will each succeed with the tools available to them in their respective times.

With more than 11 million copies sold worldwide, Ildefonso Falcones once again creates expectations in the publishing sector with this new book of great social and human significance, which aspires to cry out for historical justice.
