It is 1984, the height of Nicaraguas post - revolutionary war, and the peace - activist Friesens have come to protest American involvement. In the midst of this tumult, Juliets family lives outside of the boundaries of ordinary life.

Theyve escaped, and the ordinary rules dont apply. Threat is pervasive, danger is real, but the extremity of the situation also produces a kind of euphoria, protecting Juliets family from its own cracks and conflicts. When Juliets younger brother becomes sick with cancer, their adventure ends abruptly. The Friesens return to Canada only to find that their lives beyond Nicaragua have become the war zone.

One by one, they drift from each other, and Juliet grows to adulthood, pulled between her desire to live a free life like the one she remembers in Nicaragua, and her desire to build for her own children a life more settled than her parents could provide.

With laser - sharp prose and breathtaking insight, these stories herald Carrie Snyder as one of Canadas most prodigiously talented writers.
