 «La muerte tenía cuarenta y siete sonidos. Si alguien lo sabía, esa era Gabriela».

 

Dos épocas: el año 1900 y el presente.

Una extraña casa de indianos en un pueblo de Ávila.

Un arpa con las cuerdas rotas y una enigmática partitura.

Dos mujeres: Gabriela, una mulata con problemas para relacionarse que solo comprende la realidad a través de la música. Mía, una chica que no sabe qué hacer con su vida y se obsesiona con el arpa y la mujer que la tocó en el pasado.

Un misterio que tardará cien años en ser resuelto.

Mingorría, Ávila, año 1900. El terrateniente Faustino Abad, tras la destrucción de su hacienda cubana, regresa a España con su hijastra Gabriela, una mulata con problemas para relacionarse. Es una virtuosa del arpa con un corazón muy singular: solo es capaz de sentir mientras suena la música. Por eso toca con verdadera obsesión para lograr atrapar las emociones que se le escapan.

El macabro plan que su padrastro lleva a cabo en el sótano de la casa arrastra a Gabriela a una situación extrema. Acorralada, la única salida que encuentra es componer una partitura que esconde una terrible confesión.

 

Mingorría, época actual. La familia Rico abandona Madrid para instalarse en una centenaria casa de indianos. Mía, la hija mayor, no sabe qué hacer con su vida. Tiene demasiado tiempo libre y busca cómo ocuparlo. El hallazgo de un broche antiguo la lleva a descubrir un sótano oculto bajo el jardín. En su interior hay un arpa con las cuerdas cortadas y una enigmática partitura. El pasado de la casa la atrapa sin remedio y Mía se obsesiona con sacar a la luz lo que allí ocurrió en el año 1900.

Widely recognized as the standard text for trainee psychiatrists, the Shorter Oxford Textbook of Psychiatry stands head and shoulders above the competition. The text has been honed over seven editions, displaying a fluency, authority, and insight rarely found in textbooks which makes the process of assimilating information effective and enjoyable. The book provides an introduction to all the clinical topics, sub-specialties, and major psychiatric conditions required by the trainee psychiatrist. Throughout, the authors emphasize the basic clinical skills required for full assessment and understanding of the patient. Discussion of treatment includes not only scientific evidence, but also practical problems in the management of patients in a family and social context. Full attention to ethical and legal issues is given within the evidence-based approach to practice provided in the text. Introductory chapters focus on recognition of signs and symptoms, classification and diagnosis, psychiatric assessment, and aetiology. Further chapters deal with all the major psychiatric syndromes, as well as providing detailed coverage of pharmacological and psychological treatments. The book gives equal prominence to ICD and DSM classifications - often with direct comparisons - making the book relevant to the practice of psychiatry throughout the world. Boasting greater use of summary boxes, tables, and lists within a new modern design, the Shorter Oxford Textbook of Psychiatry remains the most up-to-date secondary level textbook of psychiatry available. The extensive bibliography has been brought up-to-date and there are targeted reading lists for each chapter. The Shorter Oxford Textbook of Psychiatry fulfils all the study and revision needs of psychiatric trainees, but will also prove useful to medical students, GPs, qualified psychiatrists, and those in related fields who need to be kept informed with current psychiatric practice.
