This book is not for the faint of heart. While working with children as member of the Ursuline Order in rural Guatemala, Sister Dianna was kidnapped and taken to the police headquarters in Guatemala City, where she was raped and tortured in multiple ways. Her struggle to work her way back from trauma that was so severe that she could not recognize her family to becoming strong enough to fight for information about what happened to her and scores of others is hard to read at times. It is well worth the effort to become educated about victims of torture and their fights with every level of government to expose the truth behind their terrible ordeals.
