Original Title: No encuentro mi cara en el espejo

A storm is unleashed the day the aged priest Father Lubencio dies and María Casta and her teenage son Edipio try to escape the havoc it wreaks. Events like the arrival of the new priest, the appearance of the first wardrobe with a full-length mirror, or the announcement of the outbreak of the Civil War shape the life of the small mining village of Peñaforte, which is cut off from the world and slowly asphyxiating in the damp of never-ending rain. This is an extraordinary novel with fascinating glimpses of friendship, despair, tedium and mirrors that lie.
