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

Well written, well acted, well directed.
20 November 2002 | by (Tampa, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is undoubtedly the best Mexican novela I have ever seen. The acting is superb and the writing is equally as good. As for the director, she is very aggressive and often uses techniques and angles usually not found in telenovelas. It is simply - a great viewing experience.

As I write this, the story unfolds towards the climactic finish at a heart-pounding pace. It is in its final weeks but it is still worth a look-see for those interested in what American soaps wish they were.
