Xlibris will release soon ¡Abracadabra, Que Pare La Maldición!
New Spanish Novel Tells the Story of a Middle Class Family that Strives to Control Other People’s Lives only to Satisfy Their Harmful Intentions

Tenafly, NJ – (Release Date TBD) – Xlibris, the leading print-on-demand self-publishing services provider, announced today the release of ¡Abracadabra, Que Pare La Maldición!, a Spanish novel about a family’s saga authored by Dunnia Balcázar-Goldstein

¡Abracadabra, Que Pare La Maldición! tells the enduring story of a great lie between members of a middle class family – the Daniels. The direction of their lives changes dramatically as a result of a marriage and the birth of a child. The Daniels’ alcohol dependency, the Powell’s unhealthy influence, and a priest’s spiritual failure all erode the weak structure which apparently sustains the moral principles of the main characters, when they fall into a vast web woven into disloyalty, revenge and lust. Overwhelmed by the devastating result of their acts, they realize that they had been their only victims for wanting to control the lives of others with the sole purpose of satisfying their harmful intentions. Reduced to living in constant turbidity they did not suspect that inner reconciliation and redemption were hidden since the beginning behind love.

Laced with drama, intrigue and twists, ¡Abracadabra, Que Pare La Maldición! will engage any reader from the first page until the end. Readers who wish to order a copy of this book are encouraged to visit Xlibris.com, call (888) 795-4274 or send an email to orders@xlibris.com today.

Abracadabra! Stop the Curse!

The life of a unique and incredible woman whose fate was to be followed by drama, comedy and tragedy. She wandered under a lucky star, which protected her at all times, thus, overcoming the odds that forced her to swim against the high tides; but surprisingly, arriving onto safer and better shores by miracle or by her own strength. Character: Gentle as and orchid but solid as an oak tree. Distracted, but attentive to the best and worth things of life. Indifferent to the time that passes by, but always aware of the beauty around her. Understands and accepts pain, physical or mental, which she believes is absolutely needed in order to grow wiser and happier. She thinks that Happiness is within our reach and unhappiness is not letting go of things or people that don't belong to us any longer.
