Y de sueños también se vive: Novela basada en hechos reales (Spanish Edition)

by Gustavo Brandt-Wallis

En el año 2011, una joven y atractiva periodista, gracias a la gestión de una amiga, y a efectos de hacer un reportaje para el periódico donde labora, se entrevista con un hombre de edad madura, a fin de que éste le informe sobre un hecho ocurrido casi 40 años atrás, del cual éste fue partícipe.
Este suceso consistía en la hazaña de un caballo nacido en Kentucky, terminado de ser criado en Venezuela, y que en el año 1971, ganó las dos primeras carreras de la triple corona norteamericana y causó conmoción tanto en los Estados Unidos, como en Latinoamérica, el mundo y en especial en Venezuela, donde hizo sus primeras carreras, además de ser su propietario, el jinete y el entrenador venezolanos.
En el transcurso de la entrevista, donde se narra la fantástica historia del potro y sus protagonistas, la periodista y el entrevistado se enamoran, protagonizando un tórrido y frenético romance, que acontece entre lujosos restaurantes y night clubs, yates de ensueño, y un archipiélago cargado de sensualidad. Mientras se desarrolla el romance, un secreto desconocido por los amantes se interpone y atenta contra su relación afectiva.
En ésta novela se combinan la ficción con una historia verídica, llegando a un punto de confundirse ambos relatos, por lo fantasiosos e increíbles que lucen los hechos reales.

Editorial Reviews

“One of the most scrumptious books i think I’ve ever read”
All Things Books

“Like a hug in a book! … ideal book for those who doubts there’s such a thing as having it all” – Woman’s Way

“An amazing story of first love and how, even years later, the feelings can still exist. Based on a true story, this was my favourite tale of true love in recent years. Sweet, warm and endearing, it stayed with me for weeks after I had finished it. For all of us that believe there is a soulmate out there for everyone.” Bleach House Library

Quite simply, this is one of the nicest, warmest and moving love stories I have read in years and I found myself very emotional while reading it. It had some personal meaning to me, as it was a similar tale to a relative of mine, and I had to stop reading a few times in order to pull myself together. I didn’t want it to end and the lump in my throat remains with me, even as I write this review.

I LOVED this book. I was completely absorbed in it …I really couldn’t put it down – At Home with Mrs M

“A feel-good, touching and amusing tale which readers will find hard to put down” – Irish Independent
