Hands down.. THE BEST Telenovela of the last 5 years..

"And this is a tough one to accomplish as "La Madrastra" was really good. What makes this one so different? THE CHARACTERS!
Wow, they struck gold on this Ernesto Alonso production. Given the standard storyline (poor girl overcomes troubles, gains power and respect and gets her revenge to find true love), it is important to have other aspects of a telenovela that stand out to make people watch them. I believe that this telenovela has been the most colourful and entertaining of the bunch. The talents of MArgarita ISabel, Sylvia PAsquel, Alejandro Ibarra and the amazingly talented Tiare Scanda make this novela what it is. None of these people are the star yet managed to steal the star from Yadhira Carrillo and Sergio Sendel.
The story is about Nora, a humble girl who lives tormented by her father, who desperately wants her to marry for money to take care of herself and their stepmother. Even after his death, he continues to haunt her and his evils are carried on subtely by her "madrastra" (Sylvia PAsquel). She then realizes that everyone is only out to use her, even her own boyfriend..and tries to run away from it all only to land in the arms of a new lover (Sergio Sendel). She then has to overcome circumstances that happen that taint what would be their love and becomes cold and rigid..for that is the way she must be to live.
Sounds typical right? But then there's subplots..involving Nora's rich aunt and her ugly niece Casilda..and the hilarious background evil doings of Isaura (PAsquel). All these things add up and are hours of pure entertainment and never a dull moment.
BUY THIS DVD or rent it as soon as it becomes available to you. It'll have you wanting more. Tiare Scanda alone makes this novela a riot..clearly she is a great talent that has yet to truly shine in the entertainment business."
LOVED THE TELENOVELA - HATED THE EDITING

"I WAITED FOR THE DVD TO BE OUT WITH ANTICIPATION AS I HAD SEEN IT ON TV. BUT ON THE DVD THEY CONCENTRATED ON THE OTHER STORIES AND LEFT A BEAUTIFUL LOVE STORY ON THE CUTTING FLOOR. TOO BAD AS THE ACTING BY SENDEL IS SO GREAT AND THIS WAS HIS FIRST ROLE AS THE LEADING MAN.
I WOULD RATE IT A HIGH 5 STAR, BUT YOU MISS SO MUCH WITH THE EDITING."
My absolute favorite Telenovela!

"I began watching telenovelas as way to improve my Spanish -- and it worked. But now I just love them. This one was one of my absolute favorites, and I am so glad it is out on DVD. It was just as great the second time around!"
Cut too short

"This story is by far my favorite I have seen yet. The editing however...what a shame, they cut out way too many parts. I think most of us purchased this with the intention on watching the full story. I was saddened to realize I would see more on youtube of the parts missed then on this purchase. Nevertheless, Yadhira Carillo became my favorite actress after watching this telenovela and I look forward to seeing her in other productions. Her acting is sure to not dissapoint.
And so, I loved this story so much to not give it a 1 star, but couldn't give a 5 based on all the editing."
