But Fasquita's gift makes others in her small Andalusian village jealous. And to make matters worse, Frasquita is an adulteress. (It matters not that her betrayal came at her husband's behest after he gambled on her honor, and lost, at a cock fight.) She is hounded and eventually banished from her home. What follows is an extraordinary adventure as she travels across southern Spain all the way to Africa with her five children in tow. Her exile becomes a quest for a better life, for herself and her daughters, whom she hopes can escape the ironclad fate of her family of sorcerers.
The Threads of the Heart possesses the lyric beauty of a prose poem and the narrative power of a myth.
