about this item

La luz de la tierra es la emocionante continuación de La sal de la tierra, una espléndida saga medieval con intrigas, venganzas, injusticias y amores convulsos, de la pluma de uno de los grandes maestros de la novela histórica europea.

Ducado de Alta Lorena, 1218. Después de su lucha contra el clero y la nobleza, el comerciante Michel de Fleury se ha convertido en alcalde de Varennes Saint-Jacques. Sus objetivos siguen siendo los mismos: alcanzar la justicia y la honestidad y rebelarse contra los poderosos que llevan años oprimiendo al pueblo. Pero cuando Varennes está a punto de convertirse en una ciudad próspera y un ejemplo de comercio y educación, los enemigos de los Fleury tejen una mezquina red de conspiraciones que hundirá a la ciudad en un abismo de pobreza de la que solo saldrá cuando el pueblo se atreva a enfrentarse a sus opresores y cuando en la tierra brille la luz de la libertad.

Una espléndida epopeya ambientada en la áspera Europa del siglo XIII.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

La luz de la tierra / Light on Earth is the exhilarating continuation of La sal de la tierra / Salt on Earth, a magnificent medieval saga with conspiracies, vengeance, injustices, and passionate loves, written by one of the great masters of European historical novels.

Duchy of Lorraine in 1218, after his fight against the clergy and nobility, merchant Michel de Fleury has become mayor of Varennes Saint-Jacques. His objectives are still the same: to reach justice and truth, and rebel against the powerful who have been oppressive for years.Michel’s son Rémy has a goal of opening a school where everyone can learn to read and write, that of course doesn’t go over well with the head of the church who sees his long-time power threatened by Rémy’s intentions. When Varennes finally begins to thrive and become a model of commerce and education, Michel’s enemies weave a petty network of conspiracies that will drag the city into deep poverty, one which they will only emerge from when the people themselves dare to face their oppressors.

A splendid epic tale set in a rugged thirteenth century Europe.
