Words empowered by justice can never be silenced.

Isabel Ibañez

Isabel Ibañez is a Bolivian American author of powerful historical fantasy novels such as “What the River Knows,” “Together We Burn,” and “Woven in Moonlight,” in which this quote appears. “Woven in Moonlight,” which is largely based on the recent political climate of Bolivia, follows Ximena, named after Ibañez’s mother, as she resists the oppressive regime and fights for the right to happiness, love, and revolution. This quote embodies the spirit of the novel, reminding us that when our intentions are pure and just, they are immortal. It’s a subtle call to action for all of us, emphasizing the importance of standing up for our fellow humans so that they may do the same for us.
