On May 23, 2015, Pope Francis beatified Salvadoran martyr Archbishop Óscar Romero who was murdered while presiding at Mass in 1980. Three years before his murder, Rutilio Grande, Jesuit priest and friend of the Archbishop, had also been murdered for the same offense—speaking up for the poor and vulnerable.
Until this book, the stories about these men have grown elusive and vague. Now, Salvadoran native Ana María Pineda once again catapults these martyrs into our collective conscience through a story that is both significantly personal and painstakingly researched during multiple trips to her homeland where she discovered surprising facts very “close to home.”
