Salic law’s abolition in articulo mortis and accession to the throne of Elizabeth II unleash the conflictive 19th Century in Spain, time of fratricidal wars, conspiracies and mysteries.
In 1882, Elizabeth II lived her Parisian exile in the Palace of Castile, being around noble people and luxury, but far from power. To that court will arrive an attractive gentleman, Julio Uceda, sent by Sagasta with very risky documents for the queen; and also will arrive Teresa, a young girl raised and educated in Rhe Girls of Leganés, An orphans school in Madrid, whose life and thoughts are so different to that ones behind rich people.
Among Julio and Teresa will grow a love story that will have to survive to political conspiracies and the suffocating and corrupt atmosphere of a decaying monarchy. Nothing is what it seems to be, but, at the same time, everything is as hypocritical and degraded as it is shown.
Herminia Luque related us a palatial intrigue; an approximation to the historical figure of Isabel II, as well as a magnificent, precise and ironic recreation of the 19th Century. And she recounts us in an unusual and clever way, thanks to femenine characters perfectly fits and an original and intelligent narrative structure, which includes a critical look at the highly contrasting contexts of society at the time.
