9781594933257: The Furthest City Light

It's 1986. Like most public defenders, Rachel Stein is an adrenaline junkie. Inspired by the case of a battered woman who stabbed her husband to death, she devotes herself tirelessly to the woman's defense. It's the kind of case every public defender was born for. The case could change the course of law, but it ends up changing the course of Rachel's life instead. When the trial is over, Rachel impetuously joins a brigade to war torn Nicaragua where she risks her life to learn the crucial art of balance.
A story of resourcefulness in a treacherously unstable world where bad things happen to good people, The Furthest City Light illuminates a journey of hope and revelation for a woman who cares too much. A Bella Attitude Novel.

About the Author:

Jeanne Winer was a criminal defense attorney in Colorado for thirty-five years. During that time, she represented thousands of people accused of murder, kidnapping, rape, assault, robbery, theft, et cetera. Now, she's a full-time writer. During the eighties, she visited Nicaragua twice--in 1985 and again in 1987--in support of the Sandinista revolution. The trips radically altered her life: the way she saw the world, her health, and her commitment to human rights. Like her heroine, she is a rock climber, a hiker, and a skier. She's also a third-degree black belt in karate.

Review:

Jeanne Winer is a heart-breaking novelist who keeps us laughing while she lays bare the perils of idealism and the fragility of love. Whether she is writing about lesbian relationships or the Nicaraguan revolution, Winer holds close to uncomfortable truths without diminishing anybody. She's a rarity among writers: smart, witty, and fundamentally humane.
 
Kat Duff, Author of The Alchemy of Illness and the forthcoming The Secret Life of Sleep
