These are real American stories. Nancy had the strength and vision to join the Navy and leave behind the troubles that haunted others on the reservation. A Native American imbued with prided in her heritage, Nancy refused to limit her horizons. Self-esteem issues, however, left her vulnerable to victimization by men. The boys knew not to mess with the Muslim girl shrouded in her flowing garments, only her eyes and broad nose visible above her veil. Ife, an African-American raised by a devout mother, was unprepared for the consequences of her teenage indiscretions. The consequences have resonated throughout her life. Ellyn's future was in doubt when she was born in Korea with a cleft palette. Although she has thrived living with her adoptive family there were times as a little girl when she cried. Ellyn yearned to meet her biological family. These three contemporary, minority women live in the heartland. Their search for identity, self-worth, and happiness make inspirational reading.
