Un viaje que marco su vida, un encuentro que la cambio para siempre.

En el auge de su madurez, Helena Artigas busca cumplir su mas grande sueno: obtener un doctorado. Para ello debe viajar a Madrid a cursar el ultimo semestre en la Universidad Complutense. A pesar de la Resistencia familiar, esta decidida a lograrlo. Durante la travesia, los objetos mas preciados que posee caeran en manos de un extrano. Poco se imagina que ese contratiempo sera el inicio de un viaje no solo a otro pais, sino a lo mas intimo y autentico de su ser y sus anhelos. Tal vez el pasado que lleva a cuestas la confronte; quizas el futuro se le brined prometedor... hasta que el tiempo alcance. Helena, una historia contada con "h," esa letra muda como lo son un sinfin de mujeres que silencian sus penas y hacen suyas culpas que no les corresponden. Una novela tan tierna como dura en la que la ilusion pelea con la realidad para finalizar de forma insospechada. Ildefonso Falcones, autor del bestseller La catedral del mar ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

A trip that marked her for life, a chance meeting that changed her forever.

In the prime of her life, Helena Artigas wants to accomplish her biggest goal, to get her PhD. For this she must travel to Madrid to study her last semester in the Complutense University. Despite her family's resistance, she is determined to do so. During the trip, her most prized possessions fall into the hands of a stranger. Little does she know that this setback will be the beginning of a journey not only to another country, but to her most intimate and personal yearnings. Maybe she will be confronted by her past, or perhaps her future will become brighter. "A story like the endless number of women who silence their sorrows and take on burdens as theirs even though they are not theirs to take. A novel as tender as it is hard in which illusion conflicts with reality for an unimagined end. "- Ildefonso Falcones, author of the bestseller La catedral del mar / Cathedral of the Sea.
