Un libro que nos habla del amor, de las nuevas oportunidades y del poder arrollador de la esperanza Junio 1939. Una multitud se reúne en el puerto de Veracruz para recibir a los españoles que descienden del barco Sinaia, primer buque fletado por Negrín para salvar a los republicanos de la represión desatada en España. Entre ellos se encuentran los pintores Somoza y Marcial, leales defensores de la República, el arquitecto Eduardo Toledo, capitán durante la guerra de un batallón de fortificaciones, con su familia, y los hermanos fotógrafos Gabino, Mauricio y Daniel Estrella Otros compañeros de viaje, como el pintor Pepe Somoza, optará por volver a Francia y arriesgar de nuevo su vida luchando con el maquis por la libertad. Por su parte, Gabino Estrella trabajará fotografiando el país desde el aire para el presidente Cárdenas y se enamorará en secreto de Blanca, la única persona capaz de librarle del vacío que le ha dejado la pérdida de su mujer.
June, 1939. A crowd gathers at the Port of Veracruz to greet the Spaniards disembarking from the Sinaia, the first ship chartered by Negrín to save the republicans from the oppression unleashed in Spain. Among them are painters Somoza and Marcial, loyal defenders of the Republic; the architect Eduardo Toledo, wartime captain of a batallion of fortifications, along with his family; and brothers and photographers Gabino, Mauricio, and Daniel Estrella. While trying to get started as an architect in his adoptive country, and while the war that has broken out in Europe spreads across Asia, Africa, and the Americas, Eduardo Toledo searches for the way to free himself from the memory of an event at the Battle of the Ebro that keeps him from rebuilding his life and his marriage with Blanca. Other fellow travelers, such as the painter Pepe Somoza, choose to return to France and risk their lives again fighting with the resistance for freedom. For his part, Gabino Estrella works taking aerial photographs of the country for President Cárdenas, and has secretly fallen in love with Blanca, the only person capable of freeing him from the emptiness that has befallen him after the loss of his wife.
