EL ALMA DEL MUNDO

Alejandro Palomas

326 pages

FINALIST OF THE PRIMAVERA AWARD

On the June afternoon when Clea Ross and Otto Stephens arrived at the old people’s home of Buenavista none of them could imagine that they were carrying more than the weight of their age on their backs. Nor does Ilona, the

young keeper who takes care of them by their express request, manage to assume what these three months with them would bring to her life.

It has been three months and three souls united by the need of company and affection. And a cello. Two old adventurers rebelling against boredom and two children decided to go for the risk, life and truth. And this young

woman, Ilona, who hides a secret that scares her because of the pain it may cause. El alma del mundo is a great love story and also the great story about love: love for music, for life, and the last chances that two brave elderly

people invent for the emotion to live longer and in a less dark way, to the point of becoming now what they never dare to be.
