A sincere and contemporary novel about marriage, friendship, desire, and love.
Gabriela is a married woman with a husband she loves. Adores, even. A man who begs for sex once a month. And because she does adore her husband, because she does love him, she gives it to him, even though she doesn’t desire him. But every morning, Gabriela sees a stranger, a man she does desire, incomprehensibly. Gabriela is a journalist and works in the editing room with two friends, Silvia and Cósima, women she’s become deep and close friends with. Like Gabriela, they too are keeping little secrets from their husbands.

A journey into the private lives of contemporary women. Part Sex and the City, part Woody Allen, Stories of Married Women describes the daily lives of women with naturalness and humor.
