@CountTessa - Hi! Have you had chance to check back in Books section? I think I might have answered your query😀

Is it Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquivel ? There's a Gertrudis who's is a sister to the main character?

Sorry, I think I confused it with Gabriela (Gabriela, Cravo e Canela)

Am I dreaming, or is there a Jorge Amado novel with a Gertrude? He certainly liked brave, bold and fearless women - but I may be confusing myself. I will investigate...

No its much older than that. I'm sure I read it around 1988- 1994

The Lightening Dreamer by Margarita Engle?

That's about it really. I remember really enjoying it. Gertrude was brave bold fearless.. but who wrote it.
