When José returned to Spain, searching for the most beautiful woman in the shire, nobody had any doubt about who it was: María Luisa. And when Fernando, her true love, runs off with someone else after years of broken promises, everyone was even surer: María Luisa would accept José’s advances and come away with him to start her life anew in Cuba. There, María Luisa becomes intoxicated with the sensuality and freedom of the island and José is dedicated to his wife. But their lives take an unexpected turn: they meet Fernando once again in New York where the parties, fashion and high society, will change their lives forever.
