Cuando Valentina se queda huérfana a los once años, se ve obligada a atravesar el océano desde su Habana natal a la Galicia de sus antepasados para quedar al cargo de su abuela, Bruna Mencía, marquesa de Novoa. La matriarca la recibe en su solitario, decadente y majestuoso pazo y comienza a educarla para convertirla en la heredera de la dinastía.

Una prodigiosa historia de tradición y modernidad, de civilización y barbarie, de espíritus y profecías, de grelos y camelias, de reinas y santas, de meigas y lobas, en la que los personajes se debaten entre tomar los caminos escogidos para ellos o elegir libremente su propio destino. Una maravillosa novela que recoge toda la magia y el misterio de una tierra de leyenda.


ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

When Valentina is orphaned at the age of eleven, she finds herself obliged to cross the ocean from her native Havana to the Galicia of her ancestors to be cared for by her grandmother, Bruna Mencía, Marchioness of Novoa. The matriarch welcomes her into her solitary, decadent, and majestic country house and begins to educate her to someday be the heir of the dynasty.

Through Bruna, Valentina learns the tumultuous history of her family and how the wild lineage of the Mencía women, raised among nature in the depths of the Galician forests, joined the aristocratic dynasty of the Novoa, the richest family in the region. The stories of love and power between the two families, which have endured for many years, mark Valentina’s destiny as she decides if she will continue this lineage, which seems strange and riddled with mysteries and secret blame.

A prodigious story of tradition and modernity, of civilization and barbarity, of spirits and prophecies, of turnip greens and camellias, of queens and saints, of witches and wolves, in which the characters debate between taking the paths chosen for them or freely chosing their own destiny. A marvelous novel that consolidates all the magic and mystery of a legendary land.
