Mary Wallace Roanhorse describes the rich and full world of a half-Navajo, half-African American female who leaves behind reservation poverty and rises above parental neglect and sexual abuse in foster care. While working as a lawyer in Phoenix during a modern Christian crusade, called Restoration, Mary becomes friends with Charlie, a gay Irishman twice her age. He provides the support necessary for her to overcome her abusive childhood and reclaim her identity. She climbs out of the mind-numbing personal world where she often retreated to keep her rage from overwhelming her. After rescuing a young woman at the scene of a street riot between Restoration Christian crusaders and Waves Liberation resisters, and now a hero in her own right, she embraces her Navajo origins and takes action to bring her abuser to justice. --Provided by publisher.
