Secretamente tuya by Fortunata Barrios

By Fortunata Barrios

¿Puede haber algo más perturbador que enterarnos de los pormenores de l. a. vida sexual, secreta e infiel, fundamentalmente transgresora, de nuestra madre? ¿Y qué significa si eso sucede mientras ella yace en coma, cuando ignoramos el estado exacto de su conciencia?
En ese territorio proscrito y desasosegante se sitúa esta vez Romina. Casada pero no serena, leal pero no necesariamente fiel, a partir del hallazgo fortuito de un atado de cartas y una pistola ocultos bajo el suelo, debe afrontar las inquietantes revelaciones que l. a. impulsan a aclarar algunos misterios, incluso sobre sí misma.
En l. a. joven atractiva y aparentemente despreocupada que nos presentó Fortunata Barrios con Romina, su primera novela, han ocurrido algunos cambios. Cómoda en los aspectos gimnásticos de su cuerpo, ahora se interna en las laberínticas raíces del placer, aquellas que trasladan incluso más allá de los angeles enigmática infancia. Se ratifica, eso sí, que l. a. de Secretamente tuya no es una lánguida heroína que oscila, abandonada de sí, entre los angeles sumisión y el desenfreno. Romina es un personaje atípico: no es virginal pero sí pura; reflexiva y también sentimental, aunque un poco neurótica, es, por encima de todo, valiente y honesta.
