Publisher's Summary

Twenty-seven-year-old Sarah Thebarge had it all - a loving boyfriend, an Ivy League degree, and a successful career - when her life was derailed by an unthinkable diagnosis: aggressive breast cancer. After surviving the grueling treatments - though just barely - Sarah moved to Portland, Oregon, to start over. There, a chance encounter with an exhausted African mother and her daughters transformed her life again. 

A Somali refugee whose husband had left her, Hadhi was struggling to raise five young daughters half a world away from her war-torn homeland. Alone in a strange country, Hadhi and the girls were on the brink of starvation in their own home, invisible to their neighbors and to the world. As Sarah helped Hadhi and the girls navigate American life, her outreach to the family became a source of courage and a lifeline for herself. 

Poignant, at times shattering, Sarah Thebarge's riveting memoir invites listeners to engage in her story of finding connection, love, and redemption in the most unexpected places.

(Karen Spears Zacharias, author of The Silence of Mockingbirds: The Memoir of a Murder)

"This memoir combines good writing, dramatic events, and a thoughtful response to them." (World Magazine)
