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 Mar#65533;a Due#65533;as 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
