A deep and passionate love

A classic in spanish literature, this book is a must for those who love to be wrapped around an intense story. A realistic yet fantastic love, Of Love and other Demons talks about the forbidden relationship of a small white girl of 12 cursed of being possessed by a demon, ignored by her family and accepted in the slaves' community and the young right hand man of the catholic leader, the one in charge of freeing her from said demons. Drama ensues. An innocent love, full of irrational ideas and dreams that at the same time describes death, pain, growing up and maturing. Love is simply the sweetest yet worst demon of all.
