Publisher's summary

Twelve women connected by the death of another, realizing what they most want from life and reaching for it - this is the year of discovery, the year of new beginnings.

Angela Grayson ran for the school board when she was a student at UC Berkeley, then she became mayor of her hometown shortly after she graduated. Marrying young, Angela found herself trapped in an abusive marriage where her husband controlled every aspect of her life. Escaping him seemed impossible, but she prevailed and even found herself in a new relationship that was everything her first marriage wasn’t.

However, the scars were there and Angela swore she would never again feel like she had no control. She decided to run for state senate, but even in today’s world, a woman of color has to fight for the respect she deserves.

Angela is determined to help other women escape the same nightmare she faced, but when she runs up against a chauvinistic legislature, what will she have to do to make them take her mission seriously?
