Reviews

"Each of her sultry novels pierces through your flesh and bone and beats to the rhythm of your body. Mayra is an explosion of life on each page."--Arturo Pérez-Reverte
"A complicated look into the notorious woman's struggle for a liberated and independent life, the book takes a boldly feminist stance that, thankfully, is not a woeful account of maternal guilt...Isabel remains, to her tragic end, a marvelously constructed character."--Publishers Weekly
