Stay Silent : A Refugee's Escape from Colombia (Paperback) (Natalie Hyde)
about this item
Paola Gomez's childhood in an abusive home led her to dedicate her life to providing shelter for women and children in crisis. But when standing up against those responsible for the murder of a street child led to death threats against her and her family, she knew she was in trouble. After a brutal attack in the dark of night, she had only one choice: flee or die. Within hours she had left behind everyone and everything she had ever known in Colombia to start a new life in North America, where she continues her advocacy work for children, women, and at-risk communities.
