Overview

El electrizante mundo de las carreras hípicas y de los hipódromos —donde se ponen en juego destinos, grandes sumas de dinero, mucha adrenalina y el esfuerzo de largos años— deja de ser, por primera vez una novela, un simple decorado para cobrar vida en El paraíso de los caballos. Y ello gracias a los divertidos y peculiares personajes que pueblan esta obra coral llena de suspense: exquisitas propietarias en busca de emociones fuertes y buenos entrenadores que atraviesan un mal momento, aprendices de jockey que contemplan con miedo el futuro y entrenadores inflexibles que no saben perder, administradoras de ranchos y expertas en la comunicación con los caballos… Sus vidas —zarandeadas por el amor y la ambición, los embrollos y los golpes de fortuna— tienen una cosa en común: seis caballos purasangre, los verdaderos protagonistas de la novela. Y algunos de ellos aún tienen que demostrar que han nacido para ganar.
