Description: Josefa Ferrer, a famous Chilean singer and star, awakens one morning to read in the Santiago newspaper that her best friend, Violeta, has been involved in a brutal act of violence. Overwhelmed with regret and plagued with guilt for not having foreseen the tragedy, Josefa feels compelled to tell Violeta's life story -- one marked by lost ideals, disillusionment, and grief. Through the interwoven lives of these two women, Marcela Serrano explores how a woman's many roles can thwart her dreams and aspirations, and how easily the bonds of friendship and family can be strained to the breaking point.

It is only in Antigua, under the watchful eyes of "the others" -- a chorus of female ancestral spirits -- that Josefa and Violeta discover that even in the aftermath of violence and betrayal they can control their own destinies.

Exquisitely crafted and written in beautiful, lyrical prose, Marcela Serrano's unforgettable novel about friendship, forgiveness, and second chances speaks to every woman who has experienced the wrenching divide between professional ambition and family responsibility, who has been torn between the excitement of illicit passion and the security of marriage, who has craved the thrill of success while yearning for solitude in an often chaotic, invasive world.
