In the emerging city of Bogotá of the beginning of the XVII century, spaniard Inés and muisca native Suánika become friends. In this male dominated capital, full of greed and intrigues, these two protagonists look for shelter in a book that will fulfill them with freedom and unite them inexorably: El Quijote. With both of their futures truncated by circumstances out of their control, these women will mutually discover themselves through reading.
Las lectoras del Quijote is a portrait of the colonial period in America, but above all, it is the confirmation of an encounter between two different world views. Through this cultural dialogue, Alejandra Jaramillo rescues with special detail the great cosmogony of our ancestors and delivers an exciting novel.
