9788420442938: Mujer en traje de batalla (Spanish Edition)

The story of Henriette Faber, a woman who fought against many challenges and cultural biases during the 1800s to defend her beliefs and ideals in New York and Paris.

Blurb in Spanish:
Nueva York hacia 1870. Henriette Faber escribe el relato de su vida. Atrás han quedado los paseos en el chateau de tía Margot, el baile de gala en el que conoció a Robert, su época de estudiante de medicina en París, en la que tuvo que esconder su identidad sexual, el horror de las campañas napoleónicas, los turbulentos años en Cuba.

De todo aquello ya sólo quedan recuerdos. Pero hubo un tiempo en que Henriette desafió al mundo, luchó contra los prejuicios sociales y culturales existentes en su época y se abrió camino en campos vedados a la mujer de entonces: la medicina, la guerra, la libertad sexual... "Mujer en traje de batalla" es la historia de esa mujer, de un ser humano que, desde su condición de individuo marginal, logró mantenerse fiel a sus ideales y vivir con autenticidad.
