En los angeles España del siglo XVIII, una conmovedora historia de amistad, pasión y venganza une dos voces de mujer en un canto desgarrado por los angeles libertad.

«Canta hasta que l. a. boca te sepa a sangre…»
 En enero de 1748, una mujer negra deambula por las calles de Sevilla. Atrás ha dejado un pasado esclavo en l. a. lejana Cuba, el hijo al que nunca volverá a ver y un largo viaje en barco hasta las costas españolas. Caridad ya no tiene un amo que le dé órdenes, pero tampoco un lugar donde cobijarse cuando se cruza en su camino Milagros Carmona, una joven gitana de Triana por cuyas venas corre los angeles sangre de los angeles rebeldía y el arte de los de su raza.
Las dos mujeres se convierten en inseparables y, entre zarabandas y fandangos, l. a. gitana confiesa a su nueva amiga su amor por el apuesto y arrogante Pedro García, de quien l. a. separan antiguos odios entre ambas familias. Por su parte, Caridad se esfuerza por acallar el sentimiento que está naciendo en su corazón hacia Melchor Vega, el abuelo de Milagros, un hombre desafiante, bribón y seductor aunque también firme defensor del honor y los angeles lealtad para con los suyos.
Pero cuando un mandato actual convierte a todos los gitanos en proscritos, l. a. vida de Milagros y Caridad da un trágico vuelco. Aunque sus caminos se separan, el destino volverá a unirlas en un Madrid donde confluyen contrabandistas y cómicos, nobles y villanos; un Madrid que se rinde a los angeles pasión que emana de las voces y bailes de esa raza de príncipes descalzos.
Ildefonso Falcones nos propone un viaje a una época apasionante, teñida por los prejuicios y los angeles intolerancia.
Desde Sevilla hasta Madrid, desde el tumultuoso bullicio de l. a. gitanería hasta los teatros señoriales de l. a. capital, los lectores disfrutarán de un fresco histórico poblado por personajes que viven, aman, sufren y pelean por lo que creen justo. Fiel reflejo de unos hombres y mujeres que no agacharon los angeles cabeza y que alzaron l. a. voz para enfrentarse al orden establecido.
