El tiempo entre costuras

Image of item
Book
La joven modista Sira Quiroga abandona Madrid en los meses previos al alzamiento y se instala en Tánger con un amante que apenas conoce. Al encontrarse abandonada, Sira se traslada a Tetuán, forja una nueva identidad y logra poner en marcha un selecto atelier en el que atiende a clientas de orígenes remotos y presentes insospechados. Esa novela avanza con ritmo imparable por los mapas, la memoria y la nostalgia, transportándonos hasta los legendarios enclaves coloniales del norte de ©frica, al Madrid proalemán de la inmediata posguerra y a una Lisboa cosmopolita repleta de espías, oportunistas y refugiados sin rumbo. Es una aventura en la que los talleres de alta costura, el glamur de los grandes hoteles, las conspiraciones políticas y las oscuras misiones de los servicios secretos se funden con la lealtad hacia aquellos a quienes queremos y con el poder irrefrenable del amor.
A young Spanish seamstress leaves Madrid not long before an uprising and goes to Tangiers with a lover she hardly knows. Once abandoned she goes to Tetuán, forges a new identity and establishes an exclusive dressmaking shop. In a time between the end of the Spanish Civil War and the beginning of the Second World War, she becomes connected to a handfull of historical figures and is pushed toward risky and dangerous compromises. She encounters the world of high fashion, the glamour of grand hotels, political conspiracies, dark missions of the secret services, and the unstoppable power of love.
