Description

The secrets of the house are the secrets of the heart.

It begins with an act of betrayal that destroys the tenuous bonds of Celestina Errantes’s family. For years after, Celestina longs for an escape from her unhappy home. Then an unexpected gift from her wealthy Lolo offers that chance: a long-forsaken property in Manila’s bohemian district, close to where ladies of the evening ply their trade. It is no place for a proper young woman, but this house, even with its ghosts, makes Celestina feel at home.

Celestina tears into life as a wild child and loses herself in the pleasures of the night. Many bittersweet experiences later, she grows up and captivates an aristocratic restaurateur, who holds the promise to a fresh start, in a home without ghosts.

Then a sinister voice from the past threatens to drive the storybook lovers apart forever.
