The Vision Of Elena Silves Paperback / softback
In the Amazon city of Belen, in the heart of the Peruvian jungle, three old men sit on a bench.
They sit in the square every day under the hot sun, remembering the women they loved and the world when it was a better place.
One day a woman hurries past their bench whom all have reason to remember - Elena Silves, the girl with eyes as blue as the sky who once saw a vision and has been incarcerated by the Church authorities in a convent high in the Andes ever since.
But the old men remember something else. They remember that Elena had been in love at the time with Gabriel, a student revolutionary who became the most wanted man in Belen.
