Publisher's Summary

"A terrific debut, and so very timely. With smart writing and compassion, Klepper offers us a look into the hearts of two women: a Syrian immigrant hoping to find a home in the USA, and the volunteer lawyer whose work brings a second chance at life not only to her client, but to herself as well." (Julie Lawson Timmer, author of Mrs. Saint and the Defectives)

Jessica Donnelly's life is beginning to unravel. When the attorney turned stay-at-home mom tentatively volunteers to represent Amina Hamid, a woman seeking asylum, Jessica must learn an unfamiliar area of the law. Soon, rising opposition to Muslim immigration and unexpected prejudices put her relationships on shaky ground. 

Amina fled Syria with little more than memories that now fight against the images splashed on the news. Seeking a secure future and freedom from guilt and grief, she must learn to trust others amidst the reality of fear and hate. 

To find stability, Jessica and Amina will both need to harness their own strengths, which may lie in connections that transcend generations, cultures, and continents.

One of the best books

This is one of the best books I’ve read all year. It’s definitely one of those books that I want my daughters and friends to read. It reveals generational stories of strong women who live their lives quietly yet impacting many others. It deals with universal issues of partnerships, motherhood, loss, identity, immigration issues and the everyday fears that women deal with throughout their life. “Finding your place” whether it’s a stay at home Mom with children gaining their independence or a female asylum seeker from a war torn country. There is the issue of women feeling as if their life has been shrinking. The beauty of very different women expanding their worlds and relationships on various levels was inspiring. It was never preachy. This beautifully layered story hit ever note pitch perfect. I was fondly reminded of Jodi Picoult. If you enjoy reading a book where you felt your worldview was challenged and expanded (all the while every viewpoint was represented) this is your book!
The Narrator for this book was excellent and I look forward to more of her work.

**I received a free copy of this book in lieu of an honest review.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK.

The nest is getting empty.

This story is about what all of us mothers go through after we start having children and then they start being on their own. Do we go back to our careers or do we keep mothering until they are completely grown?
This story is also about immigration, muslims, and what our country stands for. Doesn't it say give us your poor, give us your.....
but for people who are coming into this country the proper way.
This story has much too it. A lawyer who is a little rusty, a husband who isn't sure he likes what she is doing. and the immigrant who is afraid to trust and who has lost everything. The narrator Lisa Beacom does a terrific job with all the characters even the accented one.
