Summary
  • Tan lejos y tan cerca como el azar que, a pesar de mandarlos por caminos diversos, los había llevado al mismo lugar, al mismo tiempo. Desde una patria a punto de esfumarse, dos familias de distintas regiones de Prusia, los Schipper y los Hahlbrock, huyen, junto con su pueblo, en un éxodo suscitado por los horrores de la Segunda Guerra Mundial. Prusia existía separada de Alemania aunque no de su fervor nacionalista ni de las bombas que extinguen una vida y perdonan otra. Las vidas de Arno Schipper e Ilse Hahlbrock, dos niños que sin siquiera conocerse ni saber lo que les deparará el destino en otras tierras, van junto a los suyos en un peregrinaje sin descanso. Buscan escapar de la destrucción, del hambre y de la muerte, pero es la esperanza de paz y del reencuentro, es el deseo de hallar un lugar donde echar nuevas raíces, lo que se les arraiga en el corazón. Inspirada en hechos reales, Peregrinos es una novela conmovedora, humana, un extraordinario reflejo de los caminos imbricados, del destino ineludible. En el hilo de la mejor literatura contemporánea, la magnífica pluma de Sofía Segovia nos regala un punto de vista singular y emocionante de uno de los conflictos más estremecedores de la historia
  • As far and as close as chance which, despite sending them on different paths, had led them to the same place at the same time. From a homeland on the verge of vanishing, two families from different regions of Prussia, the Schippers and the Hahlbrocks, flee with their villages in an exodus provoked by the horrors of World War II. Prussia existed separately from Germany but not from its nationalist fervor, nor from the bombs that extinguish one life and pardon another. The lives of Arno Schipper and Ilse Hahlbrock, two children who, without even meeting each other or knowing what destiny lay in other lands, set out on a tireless pilgrimage. They are trying to escape destruction, hunger, and death, but it is the hope of peace and reunion, the desire to find a place to set down new roots, that takes hold in their hearts. Inspired by real events, Pilgrims is a moving, human novel, an extraordinary reflection of interwoven paths, of inevitable destiny. Sofía Segovia's magnificent pen gives us a unique, exciting perspective into one of the most heart-rending conflicts in history
