He meets ‘common’ people with unforgettable stories: an aging lesbian couple, a Mexican handyman; an anorexic woman, a meth addict; a gay teenager; an unthinking college jock. As Sebastian’s understanding of life deepens he drifts further from Kitty, who begins a plot to reel him back by conspiring with his enemies.

On the run in Baja, Mexico with the seven-year-old girl she raised with her estranged ex-partner, Yoli, Maggie believes she had no choice but to rescue the abused child. Driving 1100 miles of rugged road, headed toward an audience with the guru of a spiritual community, she must elude not only the FBI, the Federales and the American media, but also self-doubt about the rightness of her actions. The closer she gets to the guru, the more Maggie realizes that her real quest is one of the spirit, and all she must overcome in order to heal her family. "Stealing Angel," by author Terry Wolverton, is a riveting journey through the spectacular landscape of the Baja peninsula and the landscape of a woman's spirit.

    How feminism has changed and how valuable its contribution has been are questions that burst forth when young Emma Firestein is raped and murdered. Despite generational conflicts, Emma’s youthful friends and her mother’s 1970s feminist colleagues will rally together to seek justice in Terry Wolverton’s "The Labrys Reunion." These differing generations come together to mourn, seek justice, and to interrogate a feminist movement that had vowed to eradicate violence against women. As challenges to established feminist beliefs surface, so do truths long held secret. And among the younger women are those who possess more than enough rage and radical belief to avenge Emma’s murder.
