Consuelo's father, mayor of Tulancingo has overextended himself financially. Her mother has dementia, and Consuelo is her caregiver. Her father takes the family to a wedding at the estate of a wealthy family, the Castillos, in hopes of attaining a loan. Consuelo is largely interested in attaining the attentions of young and handsome Juan Carlos Castillo. Indeed they share a night of passion. Her father receives the loan in exchange for Consuelo studying apothecary at the Castle of the Carques of Condera with the nuns. While at the Castle she is drawn to one Leandro de Almidon.
Juan Carlos comes to the castle, and the two men vie for Consuelo. A duel occurs, thus the title, A Duel for Consuelo.
The tension, suspense, and arc of the story will hook you and have you feverishly turning the pages toward its powerful ending.
It opened my eyes to how horrible a time in the history of the Catholic church this was. MAY GOD HAVE MERCY ON ALL THOSE WHO SHARE THE GUILT.
