Jen Johanssen is a former porn actor trying to fit into the world of academia. Her sister, Lolly Johanssen, is a cancer survivor. Nicole Parks is in prison for loving the wrong guy. And Sonya Yakowski, also in prison, is a member of a family of traveling criminals, desperately missing her young son. The lives of these four women converge in a Florida prison, where Jen and Lolly have joined forces to put on a grant-funded drama production. Despite their remarkably divergent histories, these women come together in unexpected ways, each beginning to confront and forgive her own past.

“MacEnulty writes with sympathy, wisdom and—an unexpected blessing—humour.”

The Guardian

“MacEnulty’s strong writing ability brings it above the emotion to form a full bodied story that leaves a lasting impression.”
