Summary

The international sensation Tear This Heart Out is a tale of love set in the tumultuous years following the Mexican revolution, as seen through the eyes of the irresistible Catalina Guzman, a guileless adolescent who is taken from her poor parents to marry a retired general almost twenty years her senior. Catalina has heard rumors that Andres Ascencio is a philanderer and a madman, but she falls blindly in love with him, "listening to his instructions like they come from God." It is not until they are married that Catalina discovers the extent of his ruthlessness and infidelities. As he struggles for political control, she begins a fight for independence, a journey toward liberation that will transform her from child to woman.
