Elizabeth Gilbert presenta en este libro una reflexi#65533;n profunda sobre el amor, la esperanza y la ilusi#65533;n de "empezar de nuevo". Con el tono #65533;ntimo y cordial que la caracteriza, la autora ofrece p#65533;ginas conmovedoras en las que una mujer expresa con firmeza y gran sensibilidad las cosas que le apasionan y la manera en que se entrega por un ideal; Comprometida comparte las reflexiones de una mujer dispuesta a retomar sus fantas#65533;as y hacer de su entrega un homenaje al amor, al gran cari#65533;o a s#65533; misma y a los seres que la rodean; el libro es, ante todo, una comprobaci#65533;n de que los sue#65533;os s#65533; pueden hacerse realidad. Es un libro emotivo donde las ilusiones y las an#65533;cdotas se vuelven entra#65533;ables. Elizabeth Gilbert apuesta siempre por la b#65533;squeda de la felicidad, la plenitud y el amor a la vida. Sin duda, Comprometida es un viaje m#65533;gico por el coraz#65533;n de una mujer que encuentra su sitio en el universo para ser feliz. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION At the end of her bestselling memoir Eat, Pray, Love, Elizabeth Gilbert fell in love with Felipe, a Brazilian-born man of Australian citizenship who'd been living in Indonesia when they met. Resettling in America, the couple swore eternal fidelity to each other, but also swore to never, ever, under any circumstances get legally married. (Both were survivors of previous divorces. Enough said.) But providence intervened one day in the form of the United States government, which--after unexpectedly detaining Felipe at an American border crossing--gave the couple a choice: they could either get married, or Felipe would never be allowed to enter the country again. Having been effectively sentenced to wed, Gilbert tackled her fears of marriage by delving into this topic completely, trying with all her might to discover through historical research, interviews, and much personal reflection what this stubbornly enduring old institution actually is. Told with Gilbert's trademark wit, intelligence and compassion, Committed attempts to "turn on all the lights" when it comes to matrimony, frankly examining questions of compatibility, infatuation, fidelity, family tradition, social expectations, divorce risks and humbling responsibilities. Gilbert's memoir is ultimately a clear-eyed celebration of love with all the complexity and consequence that real love, in the real world, actually entails.
