Renowned Spanish Jesuit, novelist and biographer, Father Luis Coloma, sets out to capture the imagination of the little people in his family in Pelusa. In a riveting story charged with a child-like drama where good triumphs over evil, Father Coloma spins a riveting fairy tale in a religious setting.
Evil is represented in the person of an old woman named Cobwebs who kidnaps a baby girl peacefully sleeping in a palace garden, and brings her up to do all the cooking, cleaning and washing.
Pelusa is as good as “freshly baked bread,” works hard and never complains. One day she finds an old faded doll whom she names Angelina. She dresses her as best she can, making the inanimate toy the companion and confidante of her lonely life.
One day as Pelusa sits with Angelina on the steps of the house while Cobwebs goes to mail a letter in town she sees a beautiful family approaching.
