‘Grit and Silver’ is a magical realism novella of the lives of three women growing up in poverty in Peru in the 1990s. Their partners are a soldier and drug producer, an illegal logger and a terrorist leader…  

The women experience life on the fringes of crime, displacement and the grit of survival in urban slums. Their destinies are intertwined from childhood to adulthood and the dream of a better life, sometimes at any cost, runs through their stories like a silver thread. 

Born in Brighton Joanna Heywood was raised by her missionary parents in Belgium, where she learnt French and Dutch. At University in Sterling, she studied Spanish and became interested in South America’s politics and international relations. Joanna now works for Oxfam.

Joanna is involved in the following projects: Just a Trade and Info Latinos.
