Focused on the life of Genoveva Alcocer, The weaver of crowns is a journey through the history of the eighteenth century from a Cartagena anchored in darkness. In it, imagination, intelligence, research and fraternal spirit seek to break through in a society marked by the Inquisition, in which intolerance, superstition and brutal repression predominate. Narrated with an amazing mastery of language, erudite, rigorous, musical, the novel is one of the milestones of Colombian literature. An immense novel about the background of that century of lights that has fascinated Latin Americans. A delirious book, scholarly, full of science and culture, fornication and violence --Page 4 of cover.
