1970. Six-year-old Carla Guzmán is orphaned during her country's violent revolution. She finds her mother's body with an Olympic silver medal sewn into her sweater. Carla soon finds protectors in Alicia Nuñez, a teenage communist soldier, and Felipe Sérigo, a general who passionately loves his Russian wife and yearns to be a father. Together, they struggle to rebuild their country while facing the dangers of the Cold War. Carla wants to be a gymnast like her mother, but must depend on a questionable Romanian coach. Alicia and Felipe are torn between following their ideology and ending their country's poverty. Friends become enemies, and enemies become friends and even lovers in a dangerous game of superpower brinkmanship. A discovery challenges Alicia's beliefs and pits Felipe against the father he rejected. It forces them to make a difficult choice that can save their struggling country -- or lead to World War III. Intrigue, heart-breaking betrayals, and... More > love. They happen in a place called Doria.< Less
