The Life And Calling of Jean Donovan

Published by Orbis Books .
Written in English.

About the Edition

Salvador Witness recounts a remarkable journey from the affluent suburbs of Connecticut to the jungles and refugee camps of El Salvador. The murder of Jean Donovan and her fellow churchwomen by Salvadoran troops in 1980 made headlines around the world. This book tells the story behind that event but also the story of a young woman, her growth, bravery, and humanity--and the price she was willing to pay for them.

First Sentence
