A natural evolution from the earlier, much-acclaimed collection In Love & Trouble, these fourteen provocative and often humorous stories show women oppressed but not defeated. These are hopeful stories about love, lust, fame, and cultural thievery, the delight of new lovers, and the rediscovery of old friends, affirmed even across self-imposed color lines.

Alice Walker, Jack Kornfield, Luis Rodriguez, Orland Bishop, and Michael Meade offer each listener an invitation to "imaginative activism" and an active imagining of cultural change. Not rabble-rousing but raising the level of thought and deepening the feelings that can reveal the hidden America of vital diversity and genuine nobility.
