Book Description

Two troubling stories collide in this adventurous tale. The protagonist of the first, Markheim, goes into an antique store to buy a Christmas gift. What happens here in the forthcoming hours force him to face his fears as well as his hopes and will change his destiny in an extraordinary way. In the second story, an English officer fighting in Spain during the war retires to the countryside to recover. In a mansion situated between the mountains and beautiful landscapes, he tries to find the keys to a love—and terror—story. Here, it is not easy to distinguish between that which is worldly or spiritual; both inseparably merge in the name of a woman: Olalla.

Dos historias inquietantes. En la primera de ellas, Markheim, protagonista del relato, acude a una tienda de antigüedades para comprar un regalo navideño: lo que allí le suceda en las horas siguientes, enfrentado a sus miedos tanto como a sus esperanzas, cambiará su destino de un modo extraordinario. En la segunda, un oficial inglés que lucha en España durante la Guerra de la Independencia se retira al campo para recuperarse: en una mansión situada entre montañas y paisajes fascinantes tratará de encontrar las claves de una historia de amor y de terror donde lo carnal y lo espiritual apenas se distinguen; ambos se funden inseparablemente en el nombre de una mujer: Olalla.
