This book gives the testimony of two women who were disappeared in Honduras for two weeks in 1982. I really enjoyed the style of this book, and appreciated the fact that the author seemed to truly formulate her queries towards the women's experiences. I knew a lot about South American disappearances, however really didn't know anything about the disappearances of Central America. As such, I think this book was very important for me to read being that I study Latino/Latin American studies.

This book started out very slow for me. It picked up toward the middle. The horrors described are astounding. So is the strength of the women described in this book.

If anyone has any interest in learning about Latin American history or the Disappearance, this is a good book to read.
