Magdalena’s Shadow is the story of Coco Rodriguez; a girl who idolized the memory of her supermodel mother even after seven years of estrangement.
Every day Coco watched for Magdalena on TV and in the pages of her magazines, never dreaming that the last bond she would share with her mother would be the sudden responsibility of raising Magdalena’s five month old daughter.
Unprepared for life and unprepared for parenthood, Coco takes on her baby sister as she takes on the world, with shy steadfast determination to be more than an abandoned child cast off to live or die in Magdalena’s shadow.
Magdalena’s Shadow is a coming of age piece that focuses on forgiveness, empowerment and the steadfast quality of mature love.
