Written from the perspective of three generations of women, Retribution is a story of courage and love. When Tania receives a letter suggesting that her biological father may not be who she thinks he is, she begins a journey to learn about her family’s history in Chile. Her mother, Sol, was part of the underground resistance during the military coup in Chile in 1973. The Coup was a result of unrest between the conservative Congress of Chile and the socialist president, Salvador Allende. During the week of the coup, Sol was taken prisoner and tortured. Her mother and Tania's grandmother, Soledad, disapproved of Sol's involvement in the resistance. Their relationship was rather rocky.

Although this book is relatively short its packs a lot of punch. I definitely teared up with this one.
