This interesting book tells the story of a woman, María Gertrudis Hore y Ley, born in the city of Cádiz in the 18th century. She was a woman with an enormous talent for writing poems who sought to carve out a niche for herself in a world full of men, but who never gave up participating and presenting her ideas and works in different gatherings. As time went by, she made a niche for herself and gained repercussion and began to appear in different media of the time, until her mysterious disappearance from public and social life.
