"ELISA FACING THE SEA"
"Elisa Facing the Sea" is a story of loss and reunion, love and friendship, rejection and acceptance. A book that talks about the first love, of our own acceptance and also by others; of longings and hopes, heartbreaks and disappointments, of pain.
Two women meet again on the top of a cliff after eighteen years of absence. The past linking these two women, Nuria and Elisa, is built on love, relinquishment, and pain. Their meeting will mean the return to that lost past, their teenage years, their relationship and the people they left behind.
Starting in the eighties, the novel tells the story of both women for thirty years, since they meet as teenagers until they become adults. During all that time, their lives will be shaken by forces they will not be able to control, forces that, eventually, will draw them apart: the insecurity of their adolescence will lead to fear, to years wasted in the fight against inner doubts and established canons, and to the surrender of one of them for the pressure of an education and a society that frowns upon her true feelings. However, along the long way, and in spite of the years, they could not forget each other, leading to this encounter that will allow them a second chance.
