Even as a young girl in nineteenth-century Spain, Ana Cubillas is drawn to the exotic island of Puerto Rico by the diaries of an ancestor who traveled there with Ponce de Leon. And in twin brothers Ramon and Inocente, both in love with Ana, she finds a way to get there: she marries Ramon and convinces the brothers that their destiny is in the remote sugar plantation they have inherited on the island. But Anas fantasies havent prepared her for the unrelenting heat, the dangers of the untamed countryside, and the slave labor on which life at Hacienda Los Gemelos depends. Despite tragedy and hardship, she remains enthralled by the islands romance, and will sacrifice nearly everything to keep hold of the land that has become her true home. A sensual, riveting talethrilling history told through the story of an indomitable, unforgettable woman. Spanish Description: Desde que era una nina en la Espana del siglo diecinueve, Ana Larragoity Cubillas se siente atraida por la exuberante y exotica isla de Puerto Rico que describen los diarios de un antepasado que viajo a la isla junto a Ponce de Leon. Y en los hermanos gemelos, Ramon e Inocente, ambos enamorados de ella, Ana encuentra la forma de llegar alli: se casa con Ramon y convence a los hermanos de que su destino se encuentra en la remota plantacion de azucar que han heredado en la isla. Pero las fantasias de Ana no la han preparado para el implacable calor, los peligros de una tierra salvaje, ni los esclavos de quienes depende la existencia de la Hacienda Los Gemelos. A pesar de las tragedias y privaciones, el misterio y romance de la isla la mantienen cautiva, y Ana lo sacrificara casi todo con tal de mantener el control de la tierra que se ha convertido en su verdadero hogar. Pero cuando finalmente encuentra la pasion en un sitio antes prohibido, la vida y la riqueza por las que ha trabajado se ven amenazadas por las mismas personas sobre cuyos hombros se ha levantado. Un relato sensual y fascinante: la historia cobra vida cuando se cuenta a traves de la vida de una indomable e inolvidable mujer.
