Storms from the Past

Gabriela Exilart

NOVEL. PENGUIN RANDOM HOUSE, 2015. 480 PAGES

As she awaits rescue from her prison in a woodsman's cabin, Prudencia distracts herself from her ancestral fear of storms by looking back over her life.
Her brief existence has been scarred by tragedy: abandoned by her father, she suffered abuse from her mother and stepfather whom she had no choice but to kill in self defence. Nonetheless, she was sent to prison for the crime.
Life gives her a new chance when Doña Leonides de Aragón, a woman from Buenos Aires high society, decides to adopt Prudencia as her niece. Her new identity, the one with which she is presented to the world, will be Victoria Moro Bayón.
Damp and cold, she remembers the blue-eyed stare of Diego Alcorta, a lawyer of noble birth recently arrived from Paris uninterested in romantic entanglements. But Victoria is deeply attracted to a man who has saved her twice already.
Meanwhile, Alcorta, who is involved in the Park Revolution with Aristóbulo Del Valle and Leandro Alem, is confounded. He finds that his feelings for the mysterious young woman compel him to seek her out. Beneath her submissive disguise he senses a fiery, decisive woman.
