This novel tells the story of the decadence of an ancient and wealthy family from Santiago Chile’s capital in middle XX century. The author contrasts this story with the one about Estela and Mario, the former being one of the maids of the manor. It is the contrast between the decadent life of the rich and the sordid affairs of the very poor.
It is a cruel and bitter reflection on life and what can happen after death; about lucidity and madness; about the impossibility of happiness whether one is rich or poor. The main character is Elisita Grey de Abalos, the matron of the family, now old and suffering from something like Alzheimer.
In spite of her illness, Elisita turns out to be the most lucid and clear-minded of the whole set, being able to perceive the innermost emotions and intentions of those around her, even more clearly than they themselves. Her middle-aged and bachelor nephew, Andres, discovers too late that his pretended indifference about life and passions has not cured him from the lust for life.
His brother in law, Carlos Gros, has enjoyed life’s passions and pleasures but in the way he has lost what he treasured most. On the other side there is the story of the maid Estela and her impoverished lover, Mario.
Estela is one of the millions of poor women who fall for false promises and sees her trust and love betrayed. Mario is poor and ignorant, but at some point he will be near success. However gloomy this sounds, ther is hope in the donosl I know this doesn’t sound very engaging, but I assure you it is a very readable novel with substance to it, it is a clever depiction of dpnoso human developments and it is well written.
