Kate Rice's life looks pretty good. Runner. Ex-ski bum. Java junkie. Jobs that takes her globetrotting around the world. A successful husband who keeps his head of dark, curly hair. Two beautiful kids. The proverbial dog.

A triplex apartment with a yard on Manhattan's Upper West Side. A lake house. Lots of friends, theater, clubs, parties, volunteering on political campaigns, working with refugees. But behind her cheery, smiling facade, she hides a secret. For decades. A secret so dark that it almost kills her.

But not quite.

This is a gripping, funny memoir of a woman who quits subordinating herself to her husband and society's systemic misogyny.  She leaves what looks like her safe seat in the audience--but it's really a deadly one-- and literally steps onto the stage and into the spotlight. In the process, she frees her own badass voice and helps other women do the same.

Refugee resettlement, so polarizing in the headlines, is actually unifying on the ground.

These are stories of how the American people are proving the pundits wrong, where conservative Christians and the totally secular work together to resettle refugees from all nations and of all faiths.

A stalwart progressive community in what looks like deep red America stands strong against insular insiders hiding their fear behind hate.

 

For centuries, wave after wave of newcomers have loved and fought each other in this land of brutal beauty,

And this arid stretch of high desert is, in its own way, a microcosm of America, a land of contradiction and hope.
