"The Daughter of Ines" tells the story of Macarena, a beautiful fifteen-year-old girl who has just lost her mother. To ease the family's grief, she is invited to the country house of Pilar, a friend of her parents and a member of a rigid and powerful clan. It is essentially a youthful novel about beauty, envy and teenage love.
With this new delivery Alicia Fenieux ventures into women's literature, rescuing those women who no longer exist today; those who were pointed at in the 70's.
In this novel, the past and the present are combined in an agile yet nostalgic plot that sustains the tension from beginning to end. An easy to read, entertaining and ideal book for self-giving.
