Maria is devastated. Her favorite brother, the Emperor Carlos V has just died. Several months later her older sister, Eleonor of Austria, has also died. Submerged in pain and grief, she decides to turn over to her sister Catalina (the only sibling still alive) her personal letters that are filled with details of her life. This is the beginning of a novel filled with pain, suffering and passion, characteristics that mark the historical-romantic novels of author Yolanda Scheuber, one of the most prestigious authors of this genre in the Spanish-speaking world. With an intimate writing style, the author allows the reader to hear Maria of Austria tell her life, including the day of her birth in Brussels, her infancy in Mechelen and Austria, her trip to Hungary, her days as queen, the Ottoman invasion of her lands, the death of her husband in the battle of Mohacs, exile in Bratislava, and her move to Flanders where she governed for 25 years and participated in meetings to forge peace with France and fought for religious unity in Flanders. / Poco después de morir su hermano, Carlos V, María de Hungría se apresta a partir para hacerse cargo del gobierno de los Países Bajos. Antes de emprender el viaje, le remite a Catalina de Austria (reina de Portugal), su única hermana viva, todas sus cartas personales. En ellas María guarda el único tesoro que le queda: sus recuerdos. Yolanda Scheuber, con su particular estilo, nos ofrece la única historia escrita en español sobre esta reina que, como sus hermanas, estuvo destinada a hacer flamear la divisa de los Habsburgo.
