Description
An outstanding success around the world, "The Time in Between "has sold more than two million copies and inspired the Spanish television series based on the book, dubbed by the media as the "Spanish "Downton Abbey."" In the US it was a critical and commercial hit, and a "New York Times "bestseller in paperback.
La joven modista Sira Quiroga abandona el Madrid agitado de los meses previos al alzamiento arrastrada por el amor desbocado hacia un hombre a quien apenas conoce. Con el se instala en Tanger, una ciudad exotica y vibrante donde todo puede suceder. Incluso la traicion.
Sola, desubicada y cargada de deudas ajenas, Sira se traslada a Tetuan, capital del Protectorado Espanol en Marruecos. Gracias a la ayuda de nuevas amistades forjara una nueva identidad y lograra poner en marcha un taller de alta costura en el que atendera a clientas de origenes lejanos y presentes insospechados. A partir de entonces, con los ecos de la guerra europea resonando en la distancia, el destino de Sira queda ligado al de un punado de carismaticos personajes que la empujaran hacia un inesperado compromiso en el que las artes de su oficio ocultaran algo mucho mas arriesgado.
"El tiempo entre costuras "es una novela de amor, de ritmo imparable cargada de encuentros y desencuentros, de identidades encubiertas y giros inesperados; de ternura, traiciones y angeles caidos.
