Storyline

Luciana, a poor, young woman working as a maid in the venerable Velarde home, falls in love with young seminary student Juan de la Cruz, the Velarde's son. The night before Juan is to return to the seminary, he and Luciana give in to their feelings and spend a night together. A short time after Juan leaves, Luciana discovers she is pregnant and is forced to tell Ana Joaquina, Juan's cruel mother, that Juan is the father. Mercilessly fired and thrown out of the house, Luciana is left homeless and penniless on the streets. On a cold, rainy night, Luciana gives birth to a baby girl. Terrified and alone, Luciana makes the painful decision to leave her baby on the doorstep of a mansion in hopes that someone else could give her daughter a better life. Twenty years later, Luciana has now become Luciana Duval: a renowned and respected business woman in the fashion world. As the owner of her own fashion empire, Luciana seems to have it all: success, wealth, fame, a handsome and loving husband ... Written by skillwithaquill

The best telenovela I've seen
2 March 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Having seen many South American telenovela's over the years I would say this is simply the best. It contains all the classic ingredients -two lovers separated by circumstances, family secrets and regrets, and evil characters that will not stop at nothing to get what they want...There is also an overtly religious theme about the will of God throughout the story. Both Helena Rojas and Adela Noriega as Luciana and Cristina give moving performances as good as you would see in any cinema production. They are supported by an excellent cast of both likable characters and those that you will love to hate - especially the crazy Tamara and the priest's even crazier mother! For enjoyment, excitement and sentimentality I cannot recommend it enough!
