Euridice is young, beautiful and ambitious, but when her rebellious sister Guida elopes, she sets her own aspirations aside and vows to settle down as a model wife and daughter. And yet as her husband's professional success grows, so does Euridice's feeling of restlessness. She embarks on a series of secret projects from creating recipe books to becoming the most sought-after seamstress in town -- but each is doomed to failure. Her tradition-loving husband is not interested in an independent wife. And then one day Guida appears at the door with her young son and a terrible story of hardship and abandonment.

I found the book to be tedious and the author just rambles. Very poor style of writing. Stereotypes male and female as sleazy, shallow and superficial. I did not find any of the characters having any integrity. It was not a book about self discovery just a novel trying to be another Vogue or Glamour magazine. It is also a poor representation of Brazilian culture. I have always been fascinated by Brazil and this book is just garbage.
