Zoilo and Elisa watch their native Cartagena move away from the deck of the liner that will deliver them to a new and uncertain life in Mexico. Driven by the violence of the anarchist revolts in Spain, the wealthy couple are forced to flee before the workers rise up against them and their mining properties.
However, shortly after the ship sails, Zoilo disappears under mysterious circumstances, leaving Elisa alone at a time when a woman’s only recourse to survive alone in an unknown destination is her strength.
Whilst the young woman investigates the past of the man she loves, she is faced with a world that is changing and that heralds the end of an era. Nacho Sánchez Carrasco writes this moving novel, impeccably documented, in which betrayal, love and the perils of ambition reveal a fascinating story.
