Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Four people walk the roads of Spain at its glorious peak in 1539, each rejected by society and fleeing from something: a woman wants to escape her past, a young girl leaves her childhood behind, a black albino man is marked by his condition, and an eccentric young man searches for love. Their hidden pasts unite them on the adventures—some happy, some painful, all exciting—that punctuate their journey. But just as in a labyrinth of mirrors, everything is not always as it seems, and the fates of the four heroes are resolved in unexpected ways.


Cuatro personas recorren a pie los caminos de la España gloriosa y en plena expansión de 1539, rechazadas por la sociedad y huyendo de algo: una mujer busca escapar de su pasado, una niña deja atrás a la infancia, un hombre negro está marcado por su condición de albino y un joven estrafalario busca el amor. Sus pasados ocultos los unen en las aventuras—alegres unas, dolorosas otras, trepidantes todas—que salpican su viaje. Pero al igual que en un laberinto de espejos, lo que se ve no siempre es real y los destinos de los cuatro protagonistas se resuelven en maneras inesperadas.
