Publisher's Summary

Hace 50 años, las playas de Cannes se convirtieron en el escenario perfecto para que Joan y Soledad vivieran la historia de su primer amor. Sin embargo, medio siglo más tarde y tras haber forjado vidas aparentemente separadas, sus cadáveres son encontrados juntos y vestidos con trajes nupciales. A partir de este punto, sus respectivos hijos deberán armar el misterioso rompecabezas de las vidas de sus padres, en donde la muerte no sólo puede sellar un destino sino revelar el destino de los hijos.

Fifty years ago, the beaches of Cannes set the stage for Joan and Soledad's first love. Half a century after having gone their separate ways, the two are reunited in an uncanny but romantic way - their corpses are found together, dressed up in nuptial attire. The novel develops as the departed's children search for the missing pieces to the puzzle of their parents' lives, and in their quest they find that their parents' death has a lot to show them about their own lives.

Please note: This audiobook is in Spanish.

Best long story

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I like long audiobooks and this one is 17 hours! Also the narrator is excellent, beautiful voice and good different voices for each character. The story is very romantic. Reminds me of La Sombra Del Viento or The Shadow Of The Wind.

Un libro para volver a sentir el amor a el amor!

Simplemente es un cuento de hadas que lleva al lector a sentir esas primeras cosquillas y mariposas en el estomago al saber que eso solo se siente al ver a una persona al cual hay una atraccion inevitable que no se puede parar aun al estar con el/ella. Me enamore, llore, sonrei, me enoje,y volvi a sentirme enamorada y joven tambien me recordo a apreciar lo que tengo y a dar gracias a Dios por mi marido ........Les recomiendo este libro con todo mi corazon!! Esta fabuloso!!!
