It took seventy years since the death of Juana Borrero in 1896, for the last of her living sisters, Mercedes, to deliver the love correspondence between the poet and her Carlos Pio for publication.
This volume of letters had its origin in the love affair of Juana Borrero with Carlos Pío Uhrbach. These letters, due to the opposition of Esteban Borrero, Juana’s father, had to be made through a secret exchange.
In them we know a much more extravagant facet of the author, her passions, jealousy and desires for Carlos Pío.
Here we know the life of Juana Borrero, the precocious adolescent artist, friend of Julián del Casal, contemporary of José Marti, girlfriend of the poet Carlos Pío Uhrbach, especially through her epistolary communication.
About Juana Borrero Cintio Vitier wrote:

“The naïve feeling of their double greatness, the candid pride of being exceptional, the disdain for the bourgeois values that surrounded and suffocated them, the artistic exquisiteness of their tastes, the boredom, the sadness, the neurosis, all that accumulation of dogmas and prejudices in which one does not know where the truth begins and where the fiction ends assimilated like a charming tossy in the “decadent” books and magazines of the time, They pale before the reality of two beings who gave themselves to each other, not only as the heart to the ‘impossible longing’, but also as intelligence to truth and hunger to food.”
