WORDS OF FIRE
Women Loving Women in Latin America
Translated by Katie Marguerite Gray
In this impressive book Antonia Amprino breaks the silence on women loving women in Latin America. In cultures where religion and patriarchy reign romantic bonds between women are proscribed and driven underground. While these relationships have been invisible in the historical record, they have not gone unnoticed. Traveling across Latin America, Amprino unearths these treasures of subaltern love and takes us into the lives and hearts of women who, in their search for true love, also discover themselves, new clarity of life's purpose and wisdom lasting through the ages. Journey with Amprino and discover this hidden world of women whose devotion, faith and determination has sustained them to live the love that dares not speak its name.
