The Blindfold's Eyes: My Journey from Torture to Truth

Orbis Books, 2002 - 484 páginas
"In 1989, while working as a missionary in Guatemala, Sister Dianna Ortiz, an American Ursuline, was abducted by security forces and brutally tortured. Her case attracted international attention - not because it was so unusual, but because she escaped to reveal the details, and because of the explosive charge that the man who intervened with her captors, a mysterious "Alejandro," may have had connections with the U.S. Embassy." "In this memoir, Ortiz offers an unforgettable portrait of the psychological and spiritual impact of torture. Her efforts to publicize her case and to uncover the truth in the face of official stonewalling, lies, and slander, is a portrait of courage and stubborn hope. But it is also a story of faith, friendship, and the quest to prove that at the core of the human spirit there is a force stronger than violence and fear."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
