A life can last a century and yet so much can change in that lifetime. Governments come and go‚ ideologies change‚ revolutions explode into life‚ rebellions are overcome. But within that same lifetime‚ some things - love‚ sorrow‚ loneliness and joy - remain constant...
Parajita is born as the light of the nineteenth century gutters and the twentieth century takes its first jubilant breath. Trapped in her rural village‚ she marries to see the world‚ experience the wonder it can offer. But her marriage binds her in a cage of another sort.
Her daughter‚ Eva‚ is born into more liberal‚ progressive times. She has the world at her feet but all she wants is to dance the tango. Her life will take her to troubled Argentina‚ she will gaze upon Eva Peron‚ Che Guevara‚ she will see the world change beyond recognition.
And Eva's daughter‚ Salome‚ will be born into a world unrecognisable to her grandmother. Seeing freedoms won and lost‚ she determines to stand up for her rights‚ to fight against fascism. Will she pay the ultimate price?
THE INVISIBLE MOUNTAIN is an epic‚ sweeping tale of a country's growth and the live of its women‚ the story of a century in whose shadow a distant war is being played out in faraway Europe.
