Overview

En una clínica remota sobre una playa de arena negra, una mujer abre sus ojos . . .

Cuando la joven Mónica Winters Borrero pierde su madre encantadora en un accidente marítimo, ella se encuentra exiliada del paraíso tropical que una vez fue su hogar. En duelo y alejada de una vida dentro de la sociedad salvadoreña, Mónica y su padre estadounidense se mudan a Connecticut, jurando nunca mirar hacia atrás.

Años más tarde, un intrigante desconocido, quien también había sobrellevado una terrible pérdida, entra en la vida de Mónica con un pedido muy inusual. Con este encuentro, Mónica vuelve a ese mundo olvidado y retraza aquellos días oscuros, los últimos de su madre—una científica marina quien había estado a punto de descubrir y comprender la aplicación terapéutica de una rara y venenosa criatura del mar. Ahora, su trabajo de investigación científica se encuentra comprometido por una clínica secreta que afirma poseer el poder de restaurar la consciencia a los comatosos.

Lo que descubre Mónica destruirá la delicada tregua entre su familia y el pasado y obligará a que todos desafíen sus nociones más profundas sobre lo que significa estar vivo. Etéreo, pensante y clásico, La heredera del mar es una parábola impresionante sobre el paraíso perdido que luego se vuelve a hallar.
