    Nadia's daily life in south Brooklyn is filled with small indignities, but the war back home is always at the forefront of her reality. On television, Vladimir Putin speaks of the "reunification" of Crimea and Russia, and the Ukrainian president makes unconvincing promises about a united Ukraine. The one reunion she has been waiting six years for - with her beloved daughter - is being eternally delayed by the Department of Homeland Security. And when Nadia finds out that her daughter has lost access to the medicine she needs to survive, she takes matters into her own hands.

    Christopher Yuan, the son of Chinese immigrants, discovered at an early age that he was different. He was attracted to other boys. As he grew into adulthood, his mother, Angela, hoped to control the situation. Instead she found that her son and her life were spiraling out of control - and her own personal demons were determined to defeat her. Years of heartbreak, confusion, and prayer followed before the Yuans found a place of complete surrender, which is God's desire for all families.
