Amada Maria Otero Rosas debates between excelling and separating… or the opposite… because her separation from Leonardo is the starting point in a tempestuous story where she, like a good leading lady, will be forced to overcome difficulties. Instead of lightening any load her five year marriage was more like ballast. A dark tunnel she emerged from without children, without a house, without a car or anything she could call her own, because the louse she was married to even stripped her of her self-esteem during their divorce. A guy, who in spite of everything, is hard to hate because he is what women call ‘charming”, and they are not wrong, Leonardo is “a charmer”, but a snake charmer! For a time now he has had a turbulent relationship with Linda Arbelaez, his mistress and ally, with whom he carries out all the delights of this story, which also just happen to be Amada’s misery. Do you want to know more about Linda? We could tell you more, but at the risk of oversight. Opinions about her are divided: ladies despise her for being bad and men admire her for being hot. But she has everything necessary to be a sex-cessful woman; a twisted mind and a big bust with possibilities for enlargement. Amada abandons her marriage a wreck because to make matters even worse her ex-husband and the woman who took him away from her work with her at Velvet, the cosmetic firm she must abandon, renouncing her career as a sales executive. But these are not hardships; our protagonist is determined to succeed even if she has to juggle at a traffic light, be a human statue or sell cell phone minutes on a corner! The story gets even better when the tame little kitty, Amada, shows her claws, because what do you mean a civilized divorce! She is not going to sit still while the other two prance around enjoying themselves … and especially not after they made fun of her and left her looking bad. Vengeance is a plate that is best served cold and nobody is more aware of that than the “ex”! While she goes through hard times and consummates her revenge, Amada must return to her parent’s house. There she is unwillingly received by a family that instead of being united could be called ‘piled together’ and that only give her headaches. A family that consists of a father who lost his shame before his memory, a mother anxiously awaiting widowhood, a very stable older brother (forty years spent inside the house), and two cousins who study at the university (Hansel and Gretel) who, within this small circus, feel like two Martians…oh, and Melanie, an undomesticated worker who arrives from the Magdalena Medio of Colombia. Amada loves them all, but she knows that this family’s bosom needs a mastectomy! But, Amada also has emotional support; she has Elsa and Margarita on her side. Two lifelong friends who adore her and admire her because they see in her the strongest candidate to be crowned Miss Inner Beauty… that is if such a beauty pageant were to exist! Amada also has an inner voice, somebody we can refer to as her grounding force, her opposite pole, her dark side, her other me or her conscience. Her name is Miranda and she has the same face as Amada and visits her in her moments of reflection to either orient her, disorient her or both. The story has a happy ending. Encouraged by her friends she discovers her talent to console and Amada starts a marriage agency in her house that, in spite of her family’s help, is successful. It also leads her to host her own television space offering sentimental guidance on: ‘Amada, Expert in Love”. And love? Well, Amada is too human not to feel it and at the end she finds it, exactly where she should have looked from the start.
