PlotEdit

Don Antonio Uribe lives with his family on his ranch, near the city of Guanajuato. One day, he receives a message from Clara Isabel Martel, his young love, calling him to his deathbed. Clara Isabel begs him as a last will to take care of her daughter, Esperanza, and he promises to be a second father to the girl. Consuelo, Antonio's wife, resents Esperanza's presence and treats her very badly, while her son, Luis Gustavo, is immediately attracted to Esperanza. Consuelo is enraged by her son's feelings and decides to separate the children by sending Luis Gustavo to study abroad and putting Esperanza in a school run by nuns.

On the other hand, Fermín Requena, Antonio's neighbor and friend, is a widower and has a daughter, Silvia, who is spoiled and self-centered. Silvia is jealous of the affection that Luis Gustavo feels for Esperanza and pressures her father to also send her to study abroad so that she can be close to Luis Gustavo. However, Luis Gustavo is unable to forget Esperanza and sees Silvia only as a friend.

Ten years later, Esperanza, turned into a beautiful young woman, returns to the ranch to take care of Don Antonio, who is mortally ill. There he meets the Moraima brothers, who now own almost all of Don Antonio's land, won by a legal dispute that Fermín lost. One of the brothers, Juan Moraima, falls in love with Esperanza.

Before dying, Don Antonio gives Fermín a letter for his son in which he gives him the blessing if he decides to marry Esperanza. Luis Gustavo returns home for the funeral and when he sees Esperanza, he falls madly in love with her. However, Esperanza's beauty also awakens love in Fermín's heart; Determined to possess her, he hides the letter and hatches a sinister plan with the help of Consuelo to permanently separate the couple.

Consuelo makes Luis Gustavo believe that Esperanza is her father's illegitimate daughter, and therefore her half-sister. Horrified, Luis Gustavo decides to commit himself to Silvia and immediately leaves the country, abandoning the woman he loves, without having the courage to reveal the truth of his abandonment. Esperanza remains disappointed, believing that Luis Gustavo has stopped loving her, while he suffers in silence for that love.
