About This Book
Here, in an astonishing debut by a gifted storyteller, is the magnificent saga
of proud and passionate men and women and the turbulent times through which they
suffer and triumph. They are the Truebas. And theirs is a world you will not
want to leave, and one you will not forget.
* Esteban -- The patriarch, a volatile and proud man whose lust for land is legendary and who is haunted by his tyrannical passion for the wife he can never completely possess.
* Clara -- The matriarch, elusive and mysterious, who foretells family tragedy and shapes the fortunes of the house of the Truebas.
* Blanca -- Their daughter, soft-spoken yet rebellious, whose shocking love for the son of her father's foreman fuels Esteban's everlasting contempt... even as it produces the grandchild he adores.
* Alba -- The fruit of Blanca's forbidden love, a luminous bearty, a fiery and willful woman... the family's break with the past and link to the future.
