The Maid's Daughters
Planeta Prize 2023
Writer and journalist Sonsoles Ónega draws us into a thrilling historical drama full of intrigue, betrayal and hidden passions, where characters fight tirelessly for what they believe in – their family, their work and their rights.
One February night in 1900, as the new century is just beginning, two little girls are brought into the world at Espiritu Santo manor. Clara and Catalina's destinies are already written in the stars, but an unexpected act of revenge will change their lives, and the lives of the Valdés family, forever. Doña Inés, matriarch of the Valdés dynasty and loyal wife to Don Gustavo, must overcome heartbreak, the pain of abandonment and ruthless power struggles as she fights to make her daughter the heiress to an empire in an era when women have no right to control their own lives. The Maid's Daughters brings the wild magic of Galicia to life in an enchanting and vividly realist story, where men and women must rebel against their own destinies in order to find out the truth.
