Summary

El 1 de noviembre de 1755 la tierra tembló en Lisboa, y la vida de sus habitantes cambió para siempre.

Una novela histórica sobre el destino y el poder de las fuerzas de la naturaleza

Un terremoto de proporciones asombrosas sacude Lisboa el 1 de noviembre de 1755, festividad de Todos los Santos. Durante varios días incendios colosales se propagan por la ciudad destrozándolo todo a su paso. Mientras las autoridades tratan de luchar contra el caos, un pirata y una monja huyen de la justicia, un capitán inglés intenta recuperar su dinero y un niño busca a su hermana bajo los escombros.

En medio de la desolación que arrasa la capital del reino portugués, las historias de ese pequeño grupo de personas se entrecruzan y todas ellas se cuestionarán si la tragedia ha sido un castigo divino o una casualidad trágica que cambiará sus vidas para siempre.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

On November 1, 1755 the earth shook in Lisbon, and the lives of its citizens changed forever.
 
A historical novel about the power and destiny of the forces of nature.
 
A startling earthquake shakes Lisbon on November 1, 1755, on All Saints' Day. For several days after that, massive fires spread throughout the city destroying everything in its path. While authorities try to put all chaos in order, a pirate and a nun escape from justice, an English captain tries to recover his money, and a child looks for his sister under the rubble.
 
In the midst of all the misery and despair that devastates the capital of the Portuguese empire, the personal stories of that small group of people will cross and all of them will question whether the tragedy has been divine punishment or a tragic coincidence that will change their lives forever.
