Summary Athough we might wish to lock it away, the past always comes back to collect its due. Julia Montejo surprises us with a novel in which desire, intrigue, and suspense settle into the life of a happily married woman. From a distance, as she walks through the streets of Madrid or has breakfast in her kitchen, Virginia seems like a woman comfortably secure in a life that she chose for herself after years of adventure: now she has Alex, a fantastic husband, two little girls who love her, and a professional career that fills her days. You have to look closer to discover a strange hunger in her gaze, that isn't satisfied with typical kisses and caresses. Daniel, a man who hides nearly everything behind his horn-rimmed glasses, senses that Virginia's desires go back a long way, and from the night they meet he knows how to master them. His methods take us back to Virginia's childhood in a city up north, in a working-class neighborhood where the houses seem like jails and anyone who flees always pays a price. Is it worth it to leave, forget who we are, betray our memories to save just those pieces of life that show the best of us? Those are the questions that traverse the pages of The Dark Embraces by Julia Montejo, a novel that starts from Virginia's skin and delves into the memory of all of us. "We go through life smelling poorly, seeing poorly, and interpreting poorly to give meaning to the stories we tell ourselves." --Jeanette Malcolm
