Synopsis: After the success of Cielos de Barro, Alfaguara has just published Dulce Chacón's new novel, La voz dormida. This book speaks of the silent history of all those women that lost the Spanish Civil War.
A group of them are imprisioned in the prison of Ventas in Madrid, and their only weapon to face humiliation, torture and death is to display courage and dignity. This is a book that helps to understand the role women played during those decisive years of Spanish history.
