Summary Imprisoned and tortured in the aftermath of the 1973 coup while her lover, Manuel, is savagely murdered, Eugenia Aldunate is a rare survivor of the countless "disappeared" that would haunt Chile’s collective memory for decades. While still in prison, Eugenia discovers she is pregnant and exiled to the United States to raise her daughter alone, forbidden to return. She builds a quiet life for herself, but the scars on her arms do not fade. Horrific nightmares plague Eugenia each night, while each morning she aches for her homeland. Nearly twenty years after her exile, Eugenia is called back to Chile to testify in Manuel’s murder and seek justice for the others who disappeared.--From inside front cover jacket.
