In Fernández's own Spanish version of her award-winning novel, Intaglio: A Novel in Six Stories, the reader discovers a tightly-woven coming-of-age novel made up of sensitive portraits of six extraordinary women born in the early twentieth century near the Texas-Mexican border who leave their imprint on the narrator, Nenita.

By observing the lives of her various mentors, Nenita learns to rise above the limitations that culture of la frontera imposed on women of her mother's generation who nonetheless were able to find outlets for their creative expressions. When her mother's blue album which documents an important part of family history gets destroyed, Nenita sets out on a metaphorical journey in an attempt to find her identity amidst the cultural expressions of her community.

The six stories deftly portray women struggling with their artistic expression in a culture that limits them. From Andrea, the actress, Amanda the seamstress, Filomena who constructs magnificent altars for the Día de los muertos celebrations, the ethereal and meditative Leonor, Esmeralda, the stunning young beauty, an Zulema the storyteller, Nenita absorbs the artisitic inspirations of those around her. Fernández's gentle narrative sings with the strenght of an exceptional community of women and the influences they have on the next generation.
