Blood of the Dawn ebook cover

This novel follows three women whose lives intertwine and are ripped apart during what's known as “the time of fear" in Peruvian history when the Shining Path militant insurgency was at its peak. The novel rewrites the armed conflict in the voice of women, activating memory through a mixture of politics, desire, and pain in a lucid and brutal prose.
