Mary Sojourner writes about hardworking, hard-living, blue-collar women who fight quietly and fiercely to make their way in the world, find love and beauty, and hold on to their hopes. The heroines, most of them over forty, include single moms, aging hippies, women newly awakening to the possibility of love, and women confronting their own mortality.
John Nichols author of The Milagro Beanfield War and The Voice of the Butterfly Mary Sojourner is tough, she's funny, she's full of wisdom, a fine outrage, and lots of hope. She sees the world as it is, heartbreaking and alive. Delicate is an inspiration.
