THE WOMAN WHO LEFT. For Horacia Somorostro, living has become a veritablereclusio´n perpetua, an imprisonment. Life’s spins and randomness have been very difficult, vicious and inexplicable for her. The year is 1997. Princess Diana dies in a violent car crash. The world is saddened by the death of Mother Theresa. And the Philippines is gripped with fear. It has become the kidnap capital of Asia.
