Annotation:
An Italian immigrant to Uruguay marries a peasant girl, and the two raise a gorgeous but rebellious daughter, Eva, whose eventual marriage in Buenos Aires to a respected doctor is torn apart by her political beliefs. Her daughter Salome follows in her footsteps, and her revolutionary fervor lands her in prison. A historically rich, multi-generational romance with a touch of magic-realism, THE INVISIBLE MOUNTAIN is a story about the power of love, dreams, ideals, family and motherhood.

Praise

"Dense and lush, filled with lyrical storytelling....Miracles, poetry and guerilla fighters march through the 20th century in De Robertis' winning debut, a beautifully wrought novel of Uruguay." 07/01/2009

"De Robertis is a skilled storyteller in relating the stories of these stalwart women, but it is her use of language--from the precision of poetry to the sensuality of sex--that makes this literary debut so extraordinary." (starred review) - Michele Leber 07/01/2009

"[E]nchanting, funny, and heartbreaking....An extraordinary first effort whose epic scope and deft handling reverberate with the deep pull of ancestry, the powerful influence of one's country and the sacrifices of reinvention." (starred review) 06/29/2009

"In telling the family's story, De Robertis walks in the large literary footprints of Latin American magical realism - footsteps she is only partially able to fill. Her evocations of landscape are passionate and beautiful, helping us to feel the intense connection between geography and history and to see how the country's people are driven to move their story forward in ways that are often self-destructive....[She] has created a vivid new landscape, both internal and external..." - Lynn Rosen 08/30/2009

"[R]eaders could be forgiven for thinking Carolina De Robertis' terrific debut novel...was just another Gabriel García Márquez-alike. But Mountain overcomes its similarities to seemingly every other novel written about South America through the vividness of [her] language and her subtle variations in character....Her writing is strong and assured, particularly for a debut novel, and her powers of describing Uruguay, an oft-overlooked country in the Western hemisphere, bring that tiny country to vibrant life." - Todd VanDerWerff 09/10/2009
