  • Description

    Of Love and Other Demons, written by the Nobel Prize winning author Gabriel Garcia Marquez, is the story of Sierva Maria and Father Cayetano Delaura – a story where madness and demonic control become beautiful metaphors of love.

    Summary of the Book

    Here is another keenly enchanting story written by the master storyteller. Sierva is bitten by a sick dog on her twelfth birthday. She is the only child of a highly respected family in an eighteenth-century South American coastal town. She is sent to a convent to be kept under observation as people believe she is possessed. And Father Cayetano Delaura, who had already seen a girl with long copper hair in his dreams, comes across the cell Sierva is locked up in. He begins to attend to her with holy water and other sacramental oils. But shockingly, he finds himself falling in love with her. Read this soul-stirring story in which Garcia Marques brings out the nuances of the deepest of human emotions.

    Excellent

    The story in this book shows how some people of our society are more demonic than real demons, and how love can cure an incurable disease.
    The story keeps you in grasp and does not let you feel bored. The ending chapter very thrilling. You shall not regret this purchase.
