Nine women - as different as they are unknown to each other -are brought together by a tenth, a therapist, to share their stories. Regardless of their respective origin, social standing, age, and profession, each woman carries a weight brought about by fear, doubt, insecurity, and loneliness. Some face a past they cannot leave behind; others, a present that is opposed to what they wish for themselves, or a future that looms before them as a big black void of emptiness. They come against self-imposed or socially-accepted burdens, at peace with the knowledge that they don't stand alone and that, in the end, courage overcomes all.

Author Biography

A novelist and the child of writers, Chilean writer Marcela Serrano (born 1951) originally dedicated herself to the plastic arts, and it was not until 1991 that she published her first novel, We Loved So Much, which proved a sensation that year and won Chile's major literary prize. Her subsequent novels, among which The Hotel of the Sad Women and Our Lady of Loneliness, met with the same success. Marcela Serrano is one of the most outstanding Latin American writers working today and one of the most read in Spain and Italy.
