La pasión según Carmela narra con un realismo impresionante la historia de un médico argentino que se enamora de una médica cubana. Juntos viven en Cuba algunos de los años clave de la revolución de Castro.

Poco antes del advenimiento de la democracia en la Argentina, el vuelve; ella, en cambio, queda en Cuba, libre, pero de alguna manera convertida en rehén. La aguda percepción de Marcos Aguinis es el instrumento perfecto para hacernos conocer los pormenores de una trama mucho más compleja de lo que solemos creer. De acuerdo con la sentencia virgiliana, y pese a los percances y peripecias que los personajes sufren, Amor vincit omnia (el amor todo lo vence).


From the prize-winning, internationally bestselling novelist Marcos Aguinis comes an epic love saga set against the tumultuous backdrop of the Cuban Revolution.

It is a time for upheaval in Cuba: the time to build a new society. Even from her position of privilege, idealistic divorcée Carmela Vasconcelos sees the waves of uprising and is caught up in the excitement. Persuaded by her brother, Lucas, she flees her wealthy home to join Fidel Castro’s rebels.
In the mountainous jungle of the Sierra Maestra, Carmela meets Ignacio Deheza, a charismatic Argentinian socialist fighting on behalf of the insurrection. On the training fields of a revolution, they bond in the cause―and in a blind passion that stirs their blood and soul.

As Carmela, Ignacio, and Lucas navigate increasingly dangerous political waters, their personal fates become inexorably tied with that of their country. But when the rebellion succumbs to corruption and disillusionment, they’ll find their dedication to the movement tested. For Carmela and Ignacio, they’ll soon discover that it’s their commitment to each other―and the choices they must make to survive―that will be the greatest challenge of all.
