Summary

UNA EMOCIONANTE NOVELA TEJIDA CON LAS VOCES DE SIETE MUJERES VALIENTES

El esperado debut narrativo de Lucía Chacón (@menudonumerito)

«Coser era mucho más que unir piezas. Con ilusión, telas e hilos íbamos construyendo algo que de verdad nos importaba. Coser era compartir, crear, soñar. Sí, coser se parecía cada vez más a vivir».

Madrid, 1991. Siete mujeres muy diferentes coinciden en una pequeña academia de costura donde compartirán la historia de sus vidas. Cada una tiene un motivo distinto para aprender a coser y, entre telas, patrones y alfileres, todas ellas irán conectando con partes de sí mismas que creían olvidadas, descubrirán el poder terapéutico de la amistad entre mujeres y, puntada tras puntada, hilvanarán el relato de sus amores, dolores y secretos familiares.

Una historia inolvidable que nos muestra que en la costura, como en la vida, casi todo tiene remedio; que equivocarse y aprender van de la mano, y que cada puntada siempre encierra una enseñanza.

Julia siempre soñó con tener su propia academia para compartir con otras mujeres el amor por la costura que su madre le transmitió desde pequeña.

Amelia acaba de quedarse viuda tras permanecer toda la vida a la sombra de su marido. Cuando decide ayudar a Julia a cumplir su sueño rompe con los corsés que la sociedad le ha impuesto.

Sara necesita un respiro. Entró en la academia buscando un modo de evadirse de una vida monótona y anodina que la había alejado de sus sueños.

Catherine llegó a España en los años sesenta y es la voz de la sabiduría. Coser y compartir las historias de toda una vida la ayudarán a conectar con su juventud.

Margarita es mexicana, está casada con un diplomático, tiene dos hijos y, aunque lleva una vida cómoda, a veces se siente una extraña lejos de su hogar.

Laura es una de esas mujeres que necesita demostrar al mundo que puede con todo, que es una gran profesional y una madre excelente. Pero también necesita tiempo para sí misma.

Marta, moderna y pizpireta, es la más joven de todas. Entró en la academia alentada por su abuela aunque sus intereses son muy distintos a los del resto de sus compañeras.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

A THRILLING NOVEL WOVEN WITH THE VOICES OF SEVEN BRAVE WOMEN.

The long-awaited narrative debut by Lucía Chacón (@menudonumerito)
 
«Sewing was much more than joining pieces of cloth. With great enthusiasm, fabrics, and threads we were building something that really mattered to us. Sewing meant sharing, creating, dreaming. Yes, sewing became more and more like living».

 
Madrid, 1991. Seven very different women meet at a small sewing academy where they will share their lives’ stories with each other. Each one has a different reason to want to learn to sew and, among fabrics, patterns, and pins, all of them will connect with parts of themselves that they thought were long gone and forgotten, they will discover the therapeutic power of friendships between women and, stitch after stitch, they will weave the story of their past loves, pains, and family secrets.
 
An unforgettable story that shows us that in sewing, just as in life, almost everything has a solution; that making mistakes and learning go hand in hand, and that each stitch always offers a lesson.
 
Julia always dreamed of having her own academy so she can share with other women her love for sewing that she has had since she was little.
 
Amelia has just become a widow after spending her whole life in her husband’s shadow.
 
Sara needs a break. She came to the academy looking for a way to escape from a monotonous and bland life that took her away from her dreams.
 
Catherine arrived in Spain in the sixties and is the voice of wisdom. Sewing and sharing her life story will help her connect with her youth.
 
Margarita is Mexican, she is married to a diplomat, has two children and, although she leads a comfortable life, sometimes she feels like a stranger far from her home.
 
Laura is one of those women who needs to show the world that she can handle anything, that she is a great professional and an excellent mother. But she also needs time for herself.
 
Marta, modern and lively, is the youngest of all. She entered the academy encouraged by her grandmother, although her interests are very different from the rest of the women’s interests.
