Teresa, la abuela, creció aislada en un orfanato en medio de la Sierra Gorda queretana, y desde pequeña ha visto con vergüenza su facilidad para servir como médium a las almas en pena.

A través de ellas recibe la ubicación de un tesoro escondido y una popularidad que atrae a los políticos del momento para que les hable de su suerte. De sus hijos, uno se ordena como sacerdote, mientras otro se une a su primo para armar la Revolución y terminar envuelto en la Primera Guerra Mundial. Su hija Leonor se enamora de el General, quien la engatusa para tenerla siempre cerca como amante y marcarle un destino muy distinto al de sus sueños. Y será Alicia, la más pequeña, la de la vida más sencilla, quien hará sentir a Leonor la indulgencia que necesita para librarse de todas sus ataduras.

Con humor y una escritura ágil, Ana Lucía Guerrero nos hace viajar por el México revolucionario entre refranes, matrimonios concertados y la ruptura de una familia que necesita perdonarse.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Teresa, the grandmother, grew up isolated in an orphanage in the middle of the Sierra Gorda queretana, and since she was little she has seen with shame how easy it is to serve as a medium to souls in distress.

Through them she receives the location of a hidden treasure and a popularity that attracts the politicians of the moment to tell them about her fate. Of her children, one is ordained as a priest, while another joined her cousin to set up the Revolution and end up involved in the First World War. Her daughter Leonor falls in love with the General, who coaxes her to always have her close to her as her lover and mark a destiny very different from that of her dreams. And it will be Alicia, the smallest, the one with the simplest life, who will make Leonor feel the indulgence she needs to get rid of all her ties.

With humor and an agile writing, Ana Lucía Guerrero makes us travel through revolutionary Mexico between proverbs arranged marriages and the breakdown of a family that needs to be forgiven.
