Summary "An investigative journalist - drawing on interviews, letters and declassified government documents - provides an up-close account of what a faith that does justice looks like as she explores the full and complex life of Sister Maura Clarke, one of the four American women raped and murdered by the U.S.-trained military of El Salvador in 1980,"--NoveList.
