Angels Along My Path Of Thorns

Gabriela A. Folgar de Shea

Home Chapters 1–5 Chapters 6-17 Maps-plans Links

My book is an adventure story of a

teenage girl in 1960s Guatemala. It is the story

of my survival from family abuse, kidnapping,

rape and captivity; a story  of my  steely

resistance to all adversity, driven by my will to

survive and a desire to seek justice upon the

perpetrator of my misfortune.

Much of the story takes place in San Pedro

Pinula, Guatemala between 1960 and 1964, a

town with no electricity, where men wore six-

shooters on their belts, and where

transportation was by horse or donkey; a

region in Guatemala where justice was, and

still is, not dispensed by the law, but directly

by the victim or the victim's family—this is the

setting. If you wish you may click and read an
