An illustrated story of role models for women.
Seven maids as old as time take care of a dark mansion. Their life consists of routines: during the day, they clean, cook and serve; at night, they sit in a circle in the attic and take turns to tell the most extraordinary stories by candlelight. Tonight, however, instead of telling fictitious tales populated by heroes, each of them will finally give a name to her –also extraordinary, also heroic– truth. Thus begins this hypnotic and absorbing book carefully crafted by the Pacheco sisters to invite us to reflect on female archetypes and freedom.
