Secrets & Lies in El Salvador: Shelly's Journey

By Sherrie Miranda

Action & adventure | Paperback, eBook


Sherrie Miranda's historically based, coming of age, Adventure novel “Secrets & Lies in El Salvador” is about an American girl in war-torn El Salvador. Shelly Dalton Smith goes to war-torn El Salvador to escape from trauma and family secrets but also in the hope of helping the refugees of a brutal civil war. As she photographs her host family and the people at the refugee center, she learns the many secrets and lies that must be told when one's country is at war. Shelly falls in love with an American fighting with the guerrillas, forcing her to decide whether to put her own life in danger to help expose the truth of this horrible war. This is a love story in every sense: love between a woman and the country she has learned so much from and the romantic love that is seen between several couples.
