Blood Flowers: a novel

This gripping novel tells the story of Meg, a young missionary to Chile just in time to witness the overthrow of Salvador Allende. In the aftermath of the brutal military coup the priest she works with is murdered and she herself is the target of surveillance.

The many layers of relationship and the ambivalence of missionary work give this novel depth and relevance, no matter how many years go by after the recounted events. And knowing the author, Judy Ress - her attentive integrity and her faithfulness to the unfolding of true events - made this a compelling read for me.

In fact, I could not stop reading. It is available on Kindle as well as ppbk and hardcover.

Perhaps this invitation to silence comes with age--or perhaps it is because of the historial moment we have been called to live. But the urge is overpowering.

The riveting they are! They touch the deep, don't they?
