Mexico 1920. 'This is a strange country. Uprisings come and go like rain storms, even though they rain blood rather than water.' Wealthy landowner and aristocrat Prince Antonia Pignatelli is captivated by the beautiful but naive young American, Beatrice Molyneaux. When Beatrice marries her 'fairytale prince', she soon experiences the unpredictable and unscrupulous side the indulgent Antonio. Strong-willed like her free-spirited grandmother, Beatrice survives difficult years marred by scandal and often loneliness. But with Antonio's sister, Marietta, as her ally, and the visions of the mystical Hernan Diaz, Beatrice never loses her passion. An incredible saga, based on true events - rich in political history, romance and murderous intrigue - "Twilight at the Hacienda Cortes" follows the fortunes of the Pignatellis until their final exit. Beautifully told by the last descendants of the Conquistador Hernan Cortes of Mexico, this is a brilliantly atmospheric and engaging tale.
