Summary (From the publisher):

Juan Carlos, a self-styled ladies' man, is dying of tuberculosis. The four women in his life keep watch over him: his doting mother, his vigilant, protective sister, and the two current loves of his life--one a portrait of purity, the other as wicked as she is seductive.They all bemoan Juan's cruel destiny, and their devotion to him is so encompassing that their own lives are forgotten in the shadow of his decline.
