Secrets and Lies in El Salvador is the story of an American woman in war-torn El Salvador. It exposes death and destruction at every turn, but also validates the power of love, and embodies the gift of hope.
In her debut book, rising author Sherrie Miranda scripts a story that is not for the faint of heart. Miranda’s narrative tightly interweaves fictional characters within historical environs that zeroes in on the plight of the poor … A combination of cliffhanging chapter closures and unexpected scenes, Miranda’s novel is certain to be a wonderful addition to Central American history collections. San Diego Book Review Magazine
This novel reads like a personal account … that takes the reader straight into the life of the protagonist as she finds herself. There are elements of the confessional here, suggestions of reportage … I recommend it to all who love good fiction with heart and soul. Stuart Aken, Author of Blood Red Dust and 11 other books
A firsthand journey into perilous El Salvador in the early 1980s, when the country is torn by a war between a rich landholder-controlled government and guerrillas fighting for the everyday people … The narrative is emotive and involving, drawing the reader into what Shelly sees and feels.

“A masterful and engaging combination of fiction and nonfiction!”
Five Star Review on Amazon by SH Flores
Sherrie Miranda artfully reveals the pain and suffering politics can bring to the people of a nation. She accomplishes this by weaving harsh realities in a story of resiliency, hope, and above all love. The author demonstrates a deep understanding and appreciation of those who suffer in this small country. “Secrets and Lies in El Salvador” is very engaging, and although at times I cried, it was a pleasure to read it. I could totally relate to it!
