Greer Kadetsky is a shy college freshman when she meets the woman she hopes will change her life. Faith Frank, dazzlingly persuasive and elegant at sixty-three, has been a central pillar of the women's movement for decades, a figure who inspires others to influence the world. At its heart, this is a story about the people who guide and the people who follow (and how those roles evolve over time), and the desire within all of us to be pulled into the light.

The personal is made political for college student Greer Kadetsky one night when she stands up to ask a question, to make her voice heard, to join the fight for fairness and equality. Encouraged by her idol to pursue a life defending these principles, Greer discovers the difficulties and compromises required of even the most dedicated idealist. Wolitzer’s novel presents sympathetic and all-too-human characters battling to do the best they can while staying true to themselves and to those they love.
