How is a woman in her thirties, HIV-positive and fresh out of rehab, supposed to find love and work in contemporary, urban America? Emily Carter's critically acclaimed debut traces Glory's journey from her addictions to heroin and alcohol in New York to her rebirth in Minnesota's recovery community.
