Overview

Novela histórica que retrata el proceso de Independencia a partir de una figura tan valiosa como poco conocida: Leona Vicario, una huérfana que pertenecía la clase más privilegiada de su tiempo, pero que dejó todo para unirse a la rebelión, luchar por el fin del colonialismo español y forjar una nueva nación. En estas páginas, vemos a Leona Vicario como una pieza clave en la conspiración, al organizar el correo de los Insurgentes, vender todos sus bienes para patrocinar a los guerrilleros, con los que escapa, mientras la Inquisición la persigue y le pisa los talones para aprehenderla y someterla a juicio y tortura. Más allá de conocer a una mujer impresionante que participó activamente de la guerra de Independencia, Celia del Palacio recrea a una persona de carne y hueso, casada con Andrés Quintana Roo, fugada de una prisión, apasionada por defender su autonomía como mujer... Asimismo, conocemos detalles cotidianos de la vida en aquel momento trascendental para el país, que debido a su oficio de historiadora, Celia del Palacio logra a la perfección.
