"From Evita Peron's glittering Buenos Aires and the lush hills of Rio de Janeiro to the haven of a corner butcher shop and the halls of the United States embassy in Montevideo, the members of the indomitable Firielli family traverse the rocky terrain of their relationships with one another and a changing South America. Over the course of three generations, they struggle to carve out a life in their beloved Uruguay, a paradoxical homeland that nurtures their souls while testing their spirits. The Invisible Mountain is a poignant celebration of the potency of familial love, the will to survive in the most hopeless of circumstances, and, above all, the fierce, fortifying connection between mother and daughter."
