In Search of Bernabé
Against incredible odds, Luz Delcano is determined to find her son Bernabe from whom she was separated in the chaos that followed the assassination of Archbishop Romero. Her odyssey takes her through Mexico and into Southern California, then back again to El Salvador for the breath-taking final scenes which pit together brother against brother. In Search of Bernabe is a family saga that has repercussions of biblical dimension and resonates with international intrigue.
Limon has created memorable characters: Luz Delcano, a survivor of political purges; Lucio Delcano, Luz's son, who is the head of the death squads; Father Hugh and his friend Augie, involved in the traffic of arms; Bernabe, whose destiny was to become a priest but instead winds up as a guerrilla fighter.
