As passionate about the cause as she was about her autonomy, Leona sells all her earthly goods to support the movement and was also responsible for the creation of insurgent’s mail system.

This is the story of the fascinating woman married to Andrés Quintana Roo who managed to escape prison and the persecution of the Spanish Inquisition. It is also an exquisite portrait of the world she lived in.
