One of the great novels of the 19th century which vividly transports us to the world of the small city, prisoner of religious conditioning and social class barriers. La Regente is one most enchanting female characters in Spanish literature, richly detailed and full of psychological subtlety, and proceeding from a world and time when feminine passion dare not speak its name.
