Although they have grown separately with their souls full of prejudices against their respective families, the two cannot avoid feeling attracted to each other. Margarita will not ...

Lovely Novela
4 November 2003 | by moviegirl-1See 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.
