Os exercitos de Napole?o ocupavam Portugal. Uma mulher, armada apenas da sua beleza e argucia, vai despoletar a revoluc?o para os expulsar Perante os canh?es e as balas dos exercitos franceses, Ana Luzindra so tinha uma arma: a sua beleza. Mas a beleza tambem pode ser mortal. A Revoluc?o da Mulher das Pevides transporta-nos para os anos de terror das invas?es francesas. A morte e a crueldade marchavam lado a lado com os exercitos veteranos de Napole?o. E enquanto a Familia actual fugia para o Brasil, o povo ficava para suportar todo o tipo de humilhac?es. Na vila da Nazare, Ana Luzindra e parteira de profiss?o e uma mulher simples. Para fazer frente aos canh?es e balas dos franceses so tem uma arma: a sua estonteante beleza. Atraindo-os, um a um, para a morte na calada da noite, a jovem inspira toda uma comunidade e pegar em pedras e paus para expulsar os invasores. A Revoluc?o da Mulher das Pevides, express?o da Nazare que significa "algo insignificante", foi tudo menos isso: pelo sobressalto que pregou aos franceses, e pela posterior vinganca desproporcionada que estes praticaram sobre a Nazare, acabou por ser um dos momentos mais importantes da invas?o, e inspiraria o longo e arduo caminho dos portugueses e aliados ate a derradeira vitoria sobre as tropas do temivel Napole?o. Recorrendo a uma pesquisa exaustiva, Isabel Ricardo oferece-nos um bilhete para um dos periodos mais importantes da Historia de Portugal.
