Love in times of Vengeance
Claudia, an idealist and brave young South American woman, suddenly finds herself amid a bloody military coup during the early 1970s. She goes to hell and back, as her husband, mother, father and brother-in-law were brutally murdered in cold blood. She manages to escape from the claws of her torturer, but the Death Squads are close on her tail. Far away from home, in exile, she has just had one thing on her mind: to find Daniel, her torturer and the killer of her family. Year later, back in her native country, she tracks down her target and is ready for her revenge. She is left with two choices, hand him over the authorities, or take the law into her own hands. But in the process, love creeps in. Will she be able to take her revenge, or will love forge a new path for her?

    Love in times of Vengeance
    A deeply personal story set in Chile during the Military Coup in the 1970,s. A stark reminder of how fragile decent human values are in the face of hard right unfettered power. A compelling story that resonates today in South America and Europe. Claudia is devastated as the perpetrators of the Military Junta decimate her family and the community she loves, but she is determined to survive. I gained emotional connection into what it was to live during those times in Chile and a powerful insight into the political forces at work. Sometimes faltering when the passionate polemic overshadowed the inner struggles of the characters but the force of those characters and the dramatic events they endure kept me wanting to know what happened next. A triumph of the will to survive, a testament to the power and values of basic human dignity.
