Review Text

Emilia Larrieta nace en Madrid a finales del siglo XIX, en el seno de una familia acomodada. Su vida sufre un giro radical debido a una desgracia familiar, y pasa su infancia en una barriada marginal. Transformada en una jovencita audaz y desenfadada, ve cómo su vida cambia de nuevo cuando, tras un accidente, queda coja para siempre. Pero ni la pobreza ni la cojera podrán con el espíritu de Emilia. Cuando llegue el amor, se entregará a él sin reservas, aunque luego deseará rasgar esa página de su vida. Durante los crueles años de la guerra civil, Emilia luchará por mantener a su hija y a su propia madre. A pesar de todas las contrariedades, nunca perderá las ganas de vivir. Ya anciana, la imparable curiosidad de su nieta arrancará de Emilia recuerdos de amores perdidos, de verbenas, de hambre, de injusticias y justicias de andar por casa, que enseñarán a su nieta –y a los lectores—muchas cosas que nunca estarán en un libro de historia.show more
