About the Book
In her debut, Cole Arthur Riley shares stories and reflections on discovering sacredness in her own skin. She reflects on the lives of her grandmother and father to show us an "embodied, dignity affirming spirituality", both in beliefs and actions. Part memoir, part coming of age, Riley explores pressing topics in this season of chaos. We are asked to examine our own inherited stories as well as our ability to hold love, joy, rage, peace and rest.
