Overview
Ano 1906. Un trasatlantico italiano navega rumbo a Buenos Aires. Se trata de El Sirio, un elegante y modernisimo barco, en cuyo interior, clerigos, diplomaticos, emigrantes y una bella cupletista espanola viajan en direccion a ese Nuevo Mundo donde los suenos se pueden hacer realidad. Sin embargo, a solo tres millas de la costa espanola, el buque naufragara. De manera inexplicable, el capitan se dara a la fuga dejando a bordo un oscuro negocio de inmigracion ilegal y una intrincada trama internacional, ademas de una misteriosa caja fuerte vacia y cientos de pasajeros condenados a la muerte. Ano 2006. En el centenario del naufragio, el joven Sandro llega al pueblo del que jamas se habla en su familia. Viene en busca de las causas de un accidente que quiza nunca fue tal. Paula le introducira en el rodaje de un documental conmemorativo de la tragedia, sin imaginar que la historia que van a remover tiene mucho que ver con la suya propia. Una desafortunada promesa de honor y una anciana sin memoria, que un siglo atras viajaba al Nuevo Mundo, arrojaran insospechadas claves sobre ese barco que duerme su sueno eterno a sesenta metros de profundidad. Tras su aclamado debut con Buscame donde nacen los dragos -una novela cuyos ecos de Isabel Allende y Maria Duenas le acercaron a un amplisimo numero de lectores-, Emma Lira se confirma como una singular voz de la literatura actual, con una extraordinaria capacidad fabuladora y una exquisita y sutil sensibilidad para transmitir el alma de los protagonistas. Con esta historia basada en un hecho real pero recreado con total fantasia, nos invita a sumergirnos en un emocionante y epico naufragio conocido como El Titanic del Mediterraneo. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION The year is 1906. An Italian transatlantic ship is sailing toward Buenos Aires. It is the SS Sirio, an elegant and modern ship carrying clergy, diplomats, emigrants, and a beautiful Spanish cabaret singer toward the New World, where dreams can become reality. However, just three miles away from the Spanish coast, the ship sinks. Inexplicably, the captain flees, leaving aboard a shady business of illegal immigration and a complicated international conspiracy, as well as a mysteriously empty safe and hundreds of passengers destined to drown. 2006. On the one-hundredth anniversary of the shipwreck, young Sandro arrives in the town his family never speaks of. He comes searching for the cause of an accident that might not have been so accidental. Paula involves him in the filming of a documentary commemorating the tragedy, never imagining that the story that they are about to stir up has much to do with his own. An unfortunate promise of honor and a senile old lady, who a century ago traveled to the New World, add surprising clues about this ship that has gone to its eternal rest sixty meters underwater. After her acclaimed debut with Search for Me Where the Dragon Trees Grow--a novel whose echoes of Isabel Allende and Maria Duenas led her into the hands of a phenomenal number of readers--Emma Lira is confirmed as a special voice in modern-day literature, with extraordinary storytelling ability and an exquisite and subtle sensitivity for conveying the soul of the protagonists. With this story, based on real events but created from fiction, she invites us to immerse ourselves in an exciting, epic shipwreck known as
