Me gustó el modo en que se relató toda la historia, las distintas opiniones acerca de Leona Vicario te dan una visión muy intima de lo que pudo haber sido este gran personaje.
Buenísimo!! Muy bien escrito. Con un humor fresco y agradable. Presenta a Leona Vicario como una mujer que hay que conocer y dar el reconocimiento que merece en la historia de México
