Para lograrlo, Esquivel narra su experiencia en dos medios que hicieron que su nombre diera la vuelta al mundo: la escritura y el guion cinematográfico, dos suministros que podemos aprovechar para alcanzar los cambios que anhelamos. Basada en distintos descubrimientos científicos y reflexiones, Esquivel nos guía paso a paso mediante ejercicios que permiten modificar nuestra vida al reescribir el guión de la misma dejando atrás la culpa, los miedos, el dolor y todo aquello que nos causa daño."--Amazon

Deshecha, recibe de manos de Lucía, su abuela por mucho tiempo ausente, el diario de Tita.

La voz de María, de la misma estirpe guerrera que las mujeres De la Garza, continuará tejiendo la saga familiar. La protagonista deberá sortear los baches filiales, al tiempo que gana confianza en sí misma. Este proceso la llevará a crear una conexión inquebrantable con Tita y todos sus ancestros, y logrará así la reconciliación de cuerpo y mente. Un renacer a la vida.
