Summary

Las andanzas de la romántica y aventurera Aenlin en la España del Cid Campeador.

Aenlin, una chica intrépida e inteligente de trece años, hija de un mercader de Colonia y apasionada de los caballos, acepta suplantar secretamente a su hermano gemelo a lomos de la magnífica yegua Meletay en su viaje por España. Una vez allí, un desafortunado encuentro con el Cid cambiará su destino para siempre. Vendida como esclava y más adelante convertida en perla de un importante harén, Aenlin recorrerá Al Ándalus y se enamorará de su cultura y su gente. Cuando Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar vuelve a aparecer en su vida, no dudará un momento en seguir a su amor allá donde él la lleve, convirtiéndose en testigo de sus triunfos y derrotas.

En una época en la que las guerras fraticidas, la hipocresía social y la falta de escrúpulos de los hombres que batallaban por el poder dejaban muy poco margen de movimiento a las mujeres, Aenlin, condenada a ser sierva, logrará rebelarse contra su destino.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

The deeds of the romantic and adventurous Aenlin in El Cid Campeador's Spain.  
 
Aenlin, an intrepid and intelligent, thirteen year old girl, a merchant's daughter in Colonia and passionate about horses, agrees to secretly take her twin brother's place on the back of a magnificent mare, Meletay, on a trip through Spain. Once there, an unfortunate encounter with el Cid will forever change her destiny. Sold as a slave and later made the jewel of an important harem, Aenlin will travel around Al Andalusia and fall in love with its culture and people. When Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar turns up in her life again, she won't hesitate for a moment to follow her love to where ever he takes her, making her a witness to his triumphs and defeats.
 
In a time when fratricidal wars, social hypocrisy and the lack of qualms on the part of men who battled for power left women with very little range of motion, Aenlin, condemned to be a servant, will manage to rebel against her destiny.
