¿Puede alcanzarse la felicidad si nos mentimos a nosotros mismos?

Vuelve la autora de La gente feliz lee y toma café con su novela más emocionante y madura.

A sus casi cuarenta años, Hortense nota el peso de las preguntas acumuladas: ¿cuál es la razón de seguir impartiendo clases de danza?, ¿tiene sentido continuar su aventura con Aymeric, un hombre casado, o es solamente una inercia dolorosa?, ¿es esta la vida que se espera de una mujer de su edad, sin matrimonio, sin hijos? Pero, sobre todo: ¿tiene importancia lo que esperen los demás? Si todo esto es una mentira, quizá sea una mentira que se ha contado ella misma.

Este remolino de emociones da un giro inesperado con la aparición de Élias. Sus misterios y secretos harán que Hortense se replantee la senda que ha tomado su vida y el ánimo con que la afronta. Puede ser que, quizá, aún esté a tiempo de cambiar de vida, aunque sea a la fuerza.


Can we achieve happiness if we lie to ourselves?

The author of Happy People Read and Drink Coffee is back with her most exciting, mature novel.

At almost 40 years old, Hortense notes the weight of the accumulated questions: Why do you keep giving dance lessons?. Does it make sense to continue your affair with Aymeric, a married man, or is It just a painful inertia? Is this the life that one expects from a woman of her age, without marriage or children? But above all, does it matter what other people want?  If this is all a lie, maybe it’s a lie she’s told herself.

This whirlwind of emotions takes an unexpected twist with the arrival of Élias. His mysteries and secrets make Hortense rethink the path her life has taken and the mood with which she faces it. It might be that, perhaps, she is in time to change her life, albeit by force.
The critics have said about the author:

“Martin-Lugand unleashes a liberating energy.”– Aujourd’hui
“You get caught up in the fantastic talent of the author, who admirably manages suspense in love.” – Atlántico
“Her fluid writing quickly takes on amazing power.”– Babelio
