"Capitu lives in the mountains of Bolivia, in a town that had its days of glory during a tin boom. It was dominated by the hacienda her grandfather built, a copy of the family seat in Spain. "Now the mine is closed, the town deserted, the casa Grande uninhabitable but for a single wing. "Capitu lives on among the ruins, last descendent of the grandees. She ekes out a bare existence on the dregs of the family fortune, living little better than the old family retainers who also still cling to the hacienda. "But the view of the Andes is as majestic as it ever was. Capitu looks out on the mountains, and dreams of other days. And she writes."
