Myra Benning gazes across the meadow to the sea and the Santa Barbara Channel Islands beyond, unbelieving that she, awkward daughter of the Minnesota prairie, could have ended up in such a place—and with the love of a successful husband and two beautiful children to boot. Little does she know, her golden world is about to collapse. Faced with her husband’s infidelity, she is driven to decisions that carry her family into the murky underbelly of the idyllic Benning family surface. She is soon unsure of what is real, what’s happening, and who is guilty of what.

Nowhere Else to Go

“Those frustrated by the gridlock of hostilities facing us today may read this as the birth of the culture wars. Students, teachers, and parents may feel the profound effect of those polarizing forces on the young. You will, I hope, be moved by the lives caught up in the turmoil of those days.” —Judy Kirscht Available by: Order from your local bookstore and
