One of the men, the rich man from Vera, disappears to the latrine and fails to return. He has suffered a stroke and this bizarre and undignified event, seemingly so incidental, marks the beginning of a powerful story about two women whose bond and whose secret will endure even in death. bandoned by her parents shortly after the outbreak of war, sixteen-year-old Mar a Antonia Extarri is left at the mercy of the soldiers taking up residence in the bar. Whilst Isabel Cruces enjoys a blissful honeymoon with her Captain in Biarritz, Mar a is raped. Months later, the valiant Captain Herraiz is shot as a traitor. Suddenly both women find themselves violently altered, alone, and pregnant.
