Description
Los jóvenes héroes de esta novela intentan entender el mundo que les rodea: Anna y Omeir se encuentran en lados opuestos de las magníficas murallas de Constantinopla durante el asedio de la ciudad en 1453; el idealista Seymour está inmerso en un atentado contra una biblioteca en el Idaho de la actualidad; y Konstance viaja a bordo de una nave espacial que se dirige a un nuevo planeta en el futuro. Todos ellos son soñadores que encuentran fuerza y esperanza en la adversidad... y todos están unidos por un libro escrito en la antigua Grecia que narra un viaje excepcional
Description
Thirteen-year-old Anna, an orphan, lives inside the formidable walls of Constantinople in a house of women who make their living embroidering the robes of priests. Restless, insatiably curious, Anna learns to read, and in this ancient city, famous for its libraries, she finds a book, the story of Aethon, who longs to be turned into a bird so that he can fly to a utopian paradise in the sky. This she reads to her ailing sister as the walls of the only place she has known are bombarded in the great siege of Constantinople. Outside the walls is Omeir, a village boy, miles from home, conscripted with his beloved oxen into the invading army. His path and Anna's will cross.
