Description

En la opulenta Valencia del siglo XV, una joven lucha por preservar el legado de sus padres: un hospital celebre por atender a los mas desposeidos.Una novela apasionante, llena de accion e intriga, que retrata el valor de unas mujeres cuyo unico pecado fue defender su dignidad en un mundo que las consideraba seres moralmente defectuosos... Seres sin alma. Valencia, 1486. Tras la muerte de sus padres en extranas circunstancias, la joven Irene Bellvent se pone al frente de En Sorell, el hospital al que se familia ha dedicado la vida, con la intencion de seguir atendiendo a los mas desfavorecidos de la ciudad. Las leyes, sin embargo, conspiran en su contra: como mujer, se la considera incompleta e incapaz de hacer nada por si sola, de modo que esta obligada a encontrar un marido para poder llevar adelante sus planes. Pero la cortedad de miras y la misoginia imperantes no son los unicos problemas a los que Irene debera enfrentarse. Ni tampoco las deudas ingentes que acosan al hospital. Su principal obstaculo es el peligro que se cierne en torno a su amado En Sorell, una amenaza ominosa y letal decidida a destruir el lugar y a sus moradores. El fruto de una venganza cuyos origenes se remontan a muchos anos atras... a una misteriosa academia femenina que defendia conceptos tan revolucionarios como la dignidad de la mujer y su igualdad moral e intelectual. Como ya demostrara en Las horas oscuras, Juan Francisco Ferrandiz posee un pulso admirable y una capacidad sobresaliente para crear atmosferas opresivas y personajes brillantes, portadores de luz en epocas sombrias. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION "Do women have a soul?" That is how it all started, with that question. In the opulent Valencia of the 15th century, a young woman takes on the fight to preserve her parents' legacy: a hospital famous for attending to the poor. Hounded by unjust laws and the de facto powers in the city, soon she understands that she is facing something much more dangerous than lack of understanding or intolerance. A lethal shadow is drifting unpunished throughout the city, ready to propagate death among any who dare to defy it, especially those who know the true secrets of the hospital and of the extraordinary woman who founded it. An ambitious and thrilling novel, full of action and intrigue, which speaks to us about the strength of women whose only sin was to defend their dignity, in a world that considered them morally defective ... beings without a soul.
