Reviews - What do customers think about Cuentos De Mujeres Solas/stories About Lonely Women (Spanish Edition)?

Bueno, pero puede ser mejor  Jun 7, 2010
Es una coleccion interesante de cuentos cortos sobre vidas, momentos y sucesos de "mujeres solas". Aún no he terminado de leerlo, pero lo que he leido hasta ahora son mujeres que no tienen la fuerza para salir de situaciones de pérdida amorosa, etc. Hoy día la mujer es fuerte, no necesita una relación de pareja que la defina como mujer, se debe de hacer una segunda parte de estos cuentos, que incluyan a mujeres solas y valerosas, que a pesar de su aparente "soledad" pueden enfrentar la vida.
