A fascinating story about Anita Ribeiro(1821-1849) A woman who left everything behind to follow Giuseppe Garbaldi,(a century ago one of the most famous men in the world.) (1807-1882) an Italian national hero, through his military expeditions in South America and Europe. Their compeling partnership epitomized the spirit of the 19th century's age of romanticism and revolutionary liberalism. Using biographes and memoirs, the author wrote a fictional account of what brought this couple together, their passionate love and the history they made. But the book concentrates on the almost forgotten story of Anita, the young Brazilian girl who fought beside Garigaldi, bore him four children and died very young.
