Para dirigir el nuevo convento, don Baltasar elige a sor Petra de San Francisco.

Con este mosaico de personajes, Beatriz Espejo muestra los detalles más íntimos de cómo se forjó l. a. Nueva España. Y como si de l. a. visita a un museo se tratara, el lector asiste a l. a. exposición de retratos de personajes caprichosos, engañosos, recargados, como el estilo barroco, que van mostrando sus debilidades, su doble ethical, su adoración pagana con ídolos escondidos en sus celdas. Algunos encarnan los pecados capitales. Esta novela es un verdadero ejercicio artístico visible y antropológico por su deslumbrante lenguaje y gran investigación de fondo.
