In the village of San Andres, the rivalry between two families the Valdes and the Ramirez is centered on "El Manantial", a beautiful fountain of water that happens to bathe the small property of the Valdes and not the neighboring ranch, the rich and prosperous hacienda "Piedras Grandes", where the best cattle are raised and is property of the Ramirez. But the spring is not the real reason for the hatred between the families.

Lovely Novela
4 November 2003 | by (Orlando, FL) – See all my reviews

Recently novelas have become almost comical with their silly plotlines and hip locales. I like this one that is set in rural Mexico. Are some of the plotlines a bit extreme, well of course, this is a novela but it is well written with a leading man who although could use more backbone, is intelligent enough to not believe everything he is told. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys Mexican novelas.
