Lucia Cerna's firsthand account of the Jesuit martyrdoms in 1989 (where she was a housekeeper at the Jesuit residence), and her stories of her long journey through the U.S. Immigration and economic system, are complemented in this book by commentary and explanatory text by Mary Jo Ignoffo, who also translated and adapted interviews she had with Cerna.

For anyone interested in the El Salvador martyrs or the complicated political machinations of U.S. involvement in that nation, La Verdad reveals important information and analysis. More important, Cerna's story is a testament to her courage and determination in the face of political violence.
