INSCRIPTION FROM MEREDITH on title page; Clean, tight, unmarked; very light wear to upper back inside corner; otherwise spine straight and uncreased; absolute minimal wear; appears unread; For Beth Hill - a reluctant theology student - to be caught in shallow flakedom is her greatest fear. She's determined to escape the shadow of her accomplished brother, and is convinced that following in the footsteps of her parish-priest father would be God-awful. Beth's quest for meaning propels her to Just Living, a halfway house in B.C. - a world filled with murderers, child molesters, and an entourage of people who want to fix them. There, she leans about compassion and relationships, and that the effects of violence and murder ripple through communities without ceasing. Because safety, like love, is never assured. Those who've known violence may find parts of this story difficult to read, but it is a compelling glimpse of Canadian life usually hidden behind prison walls.
