When it arrived in the mail from Amazon, I picked it up and flew through the first few chapters, immediately captivated, and well before it was even time to start reading for class. Maria Teresa Tula's story - her life - is one of fantastically horrible tragedy, as well as expressions of human compassion and bonding; she uses the term "companero" and "companera" to describe life partners, refers to solidarity, etc. throughout the book. Tula articulates important chapters of her life in a way that captures your attention, keeps the story moving, and helps you understand the big picture of the war in El Salvador that raged for decades. Reading her story, and the history in general, has imprinted something on my soul... I cannot explain it, but I was deeply moved and forever changed by her words. I highly recommend this book. *NOTE: Due to some graphic descriptions/content, and overall heavy material, I would not advise this as reading for a younger audience. Also note there are possible triggers of sexual violence.* Ps - There is also a movie based on the book, I forget the name of it, but it is also a very powerful visual and a great companion following the book. I still sometimes hum "des colores" to myself, as the nuns sing it in the film. <3
