Summary

«-¿Cómo empezó todo?
-Fue en el otoño del año 1940, en plena posguerra...»

Una auténtica historia de amor prohibido que demuestra, una vez más, que la vida puede ser más fascinante que la ficción.

1940, Madrid. La Guerra Civil ha terminado hace un año y la alta sociedad española reinicia sus fiestas y encuentros, buscando distraerse de la amenaza de la posible entrada de España en la Segunda Guerra Mundial y de las penurias que vive el país. En una de las lujosas fiestas celebradas en el Ritz se conocen dos personas destinadas a vivir una pasión inevitable.

Cuando Sonsoles de Icaza, marquesa de Llanzol, conoce al poderoso Ramón Serrano Súñer, nuevo ministro de Asuntos Exteriores, solo una mirada le basta para enamorarse, a sabiendas de que su relación es imposible. En un país devastado, en un ambiente de falsa neutralidad, espionajes y traiciones, esta pasión clandestina dio pie al acontecimiento más comentado y más silenciado de la época: el nacimiento de Carmen Díez de Rivera. El escándalo fue tal que ambas familias ocultaron el asunto como si nunca hubiera existido...

Lo que escondían sus ojos es una gran novela histórica rigurosamente documentada que refleja perfectamente el ambiente de la alta sociedad española de la posguerra y el ambiente político en una Europa asediada por la guerra.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

A true story of forbidden love that proves, once again, that life can be more fascinating than fiction.
 
1940, Madrid. The Civil War has ended a year ago and Spanish high society restarts its parties and gatherings, seeking to distract themselves from the threat of Spain possibly joining the Second World War, and the hardships the country is experiencing. At one of the lavish parties at the Ritz, two people destined for an inevitable passion, meet.
 
When Sonsoles de Icaza, Marchioness of Llanzol, meets the powerful Ramón Serrano Súñer, the new Minister of Foreign Affairs, one glance was all it took for her to fall in love, knowing that their relationship was an impossible one. In a devastated country, in an environment of false neutrality, espionage, and betrayal, from this clandestine passion came the most talked about and most silenced event of the time: the birth of Carmen Díez de Rivera. The scandal was such that both families hid the matter as if it had never happened ...
 
What Their Eyes Were Hiding is a great and rigorously documented historical novel that perfectly reflects the atmosphere of post-war Spanish high society and the political environment in a Europe besieged by war.
