Sonsoles Ónega has written a committed, daring, compassionate and inspiring novel that asks an important question: have we been swindled?
A novel about the great swindle of working women
A daring, inspiring, compassionate and fun story about the great swindle of the 21st Century: the working woman.
This novel is a passionate call to arms for women, the Yes, we can, of women’s literature.
It is a very powerful novel. It has the same strength as Bridget Jones in her time, but updated for new times and the new woman.
It is aimed at women who are feeling overwhelmed by the pressure to be perfect wives, mothers and citizens while also being subjected to the worst judgements of all: their own.
It is a very fresh, contemporary and straightforward novel that revisits feminism and macho culture. We are in a new era and the author shows that in this novel.
