The inhabited women
by Gioconda Belli | ISBN: 9780299206840
Written by one of the most significant Nicaraguan authors of our time, the “Inhabited woman” captured us. We didn’t want to put it down. It tells the story of a young woman’s struggle to find her place in a world which is not just dominated by men but also faces times of social rebellion.
Lavinia’ accomplished, privileged, and modern life changes drastically when the spirit of an Indian warrior enters her being. She joins a revolutionary movement and finds the courage to act through her newfound love.
Belli uses a vividly sensual, lyrical writing style that brings to life the culture of its unnamed Central American setting-presumed to be Nicaragua, her home country. The inhabited women is a deeply moving, spiritual, and political read.
A must-read, especially in times of today.
