Salvador Witness: The Life and Calling of Jean Donovan
Salvador Witness recounts a journey from the affluent suburbs of Connecticut to the jungles and refugee camps of El Salvador. It is a tale for our time, a narrative of emotional and spiritual growth that led Jean Donovan at age twenty-five to dedicate her life to the poor. Her murder at the hands of government troops in El Salvador shocked the world. This book tells the story behind that event but also the story of a young American woman, her growth, her bravery, and her humanity - and the price she was willing to pay for them.
