¿Tiene la literatura la capacidad de curar? Esta novela nos muestra que estar con la persona inadecuada puede convertirnos en inadecuados y que la vida siempre nos presenta una segunda oportunidad, solo hay que encontrar el libro apropiado. Este podría ser el tuyo. Hay novelas que sirven de bálsamo y otras que provocan catarsis, títulos que proporcionan alegría y otros que ayudan a procesar la tristeza. Dentro de los libros habitan claves que pueden dar sentido al pasado o iluminar el camino al futuro. Todos nos hemos enamorado alguna vez de la persona equivocada. Silvia también. Ella descubrió que, a veces, un libro puede ser la mejor medicina. Silvia está a punto de cumplir cuarenta años y vive en París. Es la amante de Alain, un hombre casado que cada noche le cuenta la misma historia para retenerla; ella, a pesar de saber que ese cuento no es cierto, cae una y otra vez en la tentación de creerle. Su mejor amiga la convence para que visite a un entusiasta y enigmático consejero capaz de curar a través de la literatura. Gracias a autores como Oscar Wilde, Italo Calvino, Gustave Flaubert, Terry Pratchett o Mary Shelley, Silvia aprenderá valiosas lecciones, que de poco servirán cuando Alain reaparezca y disuelva lo que ella había construido: «Me equivoqué. Te necesito, no sabes cuánto». Y ella volverá a caer en sus redes como una polilla en una lámpara de camping. Gracias al poder de las historias, Silvia se enfrentará a las páginas oscuras de su propia vida, a todas esas zonas borrosas de sí misma. Pero en ese camino de baldosas multicolores también aparecerán obstáculos... Críticas: «El misterio del amor y la magia de la literatura. Dos de mis ingredientes favoritos reunidos en una historia que me ha seducido desde la primera página.» Carla Montero «Una preciosa historia sobre el poder sanador de los libros en la que París y las emociones brillan en cada página.» Elísabet Benavent «Narrada de un modo ágil y con una agudeza tan inesperada como eficaz, Espérame en la última página es un libro que engancha desde la propia sinopsis y que se revela como un auténtico manual feel good contra las relaciones equivocadas que afectan a miles de personas en todo el mundo.» El Correo de Andalucía «La literatura tiene la capacidad de curar. En Espérame en la última página Sofia Rhei nos demuestra que, a veces, un libro puede ser la mejor medicina.» El Español Los lectores han dicho... «Una novela romántica que encantará a todas aquellas aficionadas a la lectura. Un libro en que no faltan reflexiones para subrayar y en el habitan claves que pueden dar sentido al pasado o iluminar el camino al futuro. Porque a veces, un libro es la mejor medicina.» Blog Nubico «Es una historia entretenida, que invita a hacernos algunas preguntas sobre todo a mirarnos en el espejo y vernos desde afuera. Se lee bien y rápido, con una protagonista que provoca sentimientos o reacciones distintas, pero que en ningún caso deja indiferente.» Blog Globedia «Una lectura entretenida que nos hará reflexionar, una historia bien planteada y bien estructurada, en un escenario único que nos demuestra el poder sanador de los libros.» Blog Carmen en su tinta «Muy recomendable. Un libro que le gustará a cualquier amante de la literatura, además se lee rápido. No es una historia con mucha acción, pero te engancha.» Blog The books and you

Barbara Ann Brennan's bestselling first book, Hands of Light, established her as one of the world's most gifted healers and teachers. Now, she continues her ground-breaking exploration of the human energy field, or aura -- the source of our experience of health or illness. Drawing on many new developments in her teaching and practice, she shows how we can be empowered as both patients and healers to understand and work with our most fundamental healing power: the light that emerges from the very center of our humanity. In a unique approach that encourages a cooperative effort among healer, patient, and other health-care providers, Light Emerging explains what the healer perceives visually, audibly, and kinesthetically and how each of us can participate in every stage of the healing process. Presenting a fascinating range of research, from a paradigm of healing based on the science of holography to insights into the "hara level" and the "core star," Light Emerging is at the leading edge of healing practice in our time.

Can you imagine a future where everyone has given up sleeping? From the creator of the television series Red Band Society and author of the international bestseller The Yellow World comes this uniquely special novel. What if I could reveal your secrets with just a glance? And what if I could feel with your heart just by looking at you? And what if --in a single moment-- I could know that we were made for each other? Marcos has just lost his mother, a famous dancer who taught him everything, and he decides that his world can never be the same without her. Just as he is about to make a radical change, a phone call turns his world upside down. Albert Espinosa has a peculiar talent for generating immediate congeniality around him, for shifting people's moods toward the positive and for reconciling them with themselves and the world, when needed. Reviews: «Albert Espinosa lives exclusively in his imagination. He uses it to write, to direct plays and films and to act. His sense of humour is as special as his way of living. An optimism as contagious as a cold.» Teresa Cendrós, El Periódico «If there's one ability Espinosa has had in all of his multifactorial creations it's his capacity to stand in other people's shoes. Empathy is his strength.» Núria Escur, La Vanguardia «Speaking with Albert teaches me many new things, such as "it is not sad to die" and that what is sad is not living, not to live it all (...). He knows what he's talking about and knows how to tell it, and that's why his works help us to live.» Víctor M. Amela, La Vanguardia «Espinosa says what he thinks and feels, taking out any feeling from his closet in the same manner he sticks out his leg. He knows he is alive because of a miracle and that life is a short miracle. How I like this guy. His life, his theatre, his gambles, humour and his courage. There's no one else like him.» Marcos Ordóñez, El País «A militant of life, an engineer of art.» Elena Pita, El Mundo «Armoured in the face of pessimism, Everything You and I Could Have Been If We Weren't You and I shines with the positive outlook that that the author projects on everything he does.» Belén Guinart, El País «Everything You and I Could Have Been If We Weren't You and I presents a fast, direct, uninhibited, almost gestural style, which is a machine of empathy for the reader and is not devoid of humour.» El Correo Español

In this deeply etched and haunting memoir, Vivian Gornick tells the story of her lifelong battle with her mother for independence. There have been numerous books about mother and daughter, but none has dealt with this closest of filial relations as directly or as ruthlessly. Gornick's groundbreaking book confronts what Edna O'Brien has called "the prinicpal crux of female despair": the unacknowledged Oedipal nature of the mother-daughter bond. Born and raised in the Bronx, the daughter of "urban peasants," Gornick grows up in a household dominated by her intelligent but uneducated mother's romantic depression over the early death of her husband. Next door lives Nettie, an attractive widow whose calculating sensuality appeals greatly to Vivian. These women with their opposing models of femininity continue, well into adulthood, to affect Gornick's struggle to find herself in love and in work. As Gornick walks with her aged mother through the streets of New York, arguing and remembering the past, each wins the reader's admiration: the caustic and clear-thinking daughter, for her courage and tenacity in really talking to her mother about the most basic issues of their lives, and the still powerful and intuitively-wise old woman, who again and again proves herself her daughter's mother. Unsparing, deeply courageous, Fierce Attachments is one of the most remarkable documents of family feeling that has been written, a classic that helped start the memoir boom and remains one of the most moving examples of the genre.
