No. 28 Concha Romero: A SAINTLY SCENT OF AMBER (Un olor a ámbar) Translated by Karen Leahy. 2005.

This historical drama deals with the aftermath of the death of the sixteenth-century Carmelite nun, mystic and writer, Saint Teresa of Avila. The struggle to retain the holy relics constituted by her body is related through the use of metafictional devices and feminist discourse.
