San Gabriel es un hacienda en el interior del Perú.

Maravillosamente escrito, describe las peripecias internas que atraviesa un adolescente al enfrentarse al cambio, con una sutileza en la que se aprecian las costumbres de una familia en una hacienda del Perú, muy alejado de la ciudad.

Es una lectura tranquila, conmovedora y entretenida ideal para un descanso de literatura comer
