Annotation:
This is a Spanish-language edition. A Spanish immigrant to Puerto Rico gets her aristocratic life tossed into uncertainty when the United States blazes into war over slavery. Ana Cubillas, the heroine of CONQUISTADORA, manages her sugar hacienda with great success, although protests from her bonded workforce threaten to upset her idyllic lifestyle. Complicating this administrative turmoil, the redoubtable and married Ana must shoo away constant suitors for her attention--until at last a man who shakes her heart reveals himself right alongside her.A Spanish immigrant to Puerto Rico gets her aristocratic life tossed into uncertainty when the United States blazes into war over slavery.
