Overview

Sinopsis: Paula es una maestra de parvulario que no puede tener hijos y junto con su marido adoptan a Daniel, un bebé pelirrojo; al cabo de unos años irrumpe la madre biológica en ese escenario idílico, rompiendo la calma que reinaba hasta entonces. A través de diferentes etapas, desde que el niño llega al hogar hasta que se hace adulto, la mirada del hijo nos adentra en personajes como la abuela, una mujer de carácter con una especial predilección por este nieto; a pesar de que con Paula ambas son un ejemplo de relaciones problemáticas entre madres e hijas. O Sophie, la joven que aparece coincidiendo con el despertar a la adolescencia.Con un trasfondo de danza clásica asistimos a la historia de un amor que marcará el antes y el después, y en donde todos ellos tendrán mucho más en común de lo que parece.

"Su lectura está llena de interés y no nos deja indiferentes pues es una invitación a la reflexión en un mundo donde la banalidad ejerce su imperio." -Dra. Àngels Santa, en la revista L'Ull crític, 17-18.

"El lector encuentra una narrativa estimulante, que se abre a los sentimientos de distintos personajes y que exige sensibilidad para comprender cada una de las vidas que se mueven en la narración." -Dra. Alexandra Santos Pinheiro, en la revista Resonancias Literarias no. 153

Some of her novels, short stories and articles are translated into Spanish, French, English, Italian, German, Polish, Chinese, Latvian, Portuguese, Dutch and Greek.
Her writing focus on the characters' psychology, generally antiheroes. The characters are the most important in her books, much more than the topic, due to "an introspection, a reflection, not sentimental, but feminine". Her novels cover a multitude of topics, treat actual and socially relevant problems such as injustices or poor communication between people and frequently, the core of her stories remains unexplained. Añó asks the reader to discover the "deeper meaning" and to become involved in the events presented.
