Editorial Reviews

La Esclava Isaura is the passionate Brazilian story of a white slave, Isaura, who dangerously resists the advances of her master and farm owner, Leoncio, the son of the man who was obsessed with Isaura’s mother.

Isaura dreams of freedom, and when she finally flees with her father, she falls in a desperate kind of love with a good-standing man named Alvaro. Alas, this love is fleeting, as Leoncio tracks down Isaura and brings her back to the farm, where love and perhaps death awaits.

Performed by a full cast in Spanish.

El escritor considera a la mujer un instrumento que no se valora

He leído libros de esclavos muy buenos, pero este realmente pésimo. Una historia donde la mujer se no se valora, es un instrumento sin personalidad ni opinion sumisa al servicio del hombre. Es tal vez un libro bueno para lo q un macho desearía, na mujer de escaparate sin cerebro. Nada recomendable

Well dramatized, though boring

I didn't like it at all... It seemed like a cheap novel...
