The author was in the hippie culture and was a political activist in the 1970s protesting the Vietnam War. Then she became a self taught midwife and moved with her fmily to communes in Ohio and rural West Virginia.

This is a gripping personal narrative of a  woman's life from a young  adult to adulthood where she and her husband are managing a woman's clinic today.

Having grown up in Rural West Virginia, this book really struck a chord with me.  I highly recommend it.

The Rift Uprising

by Amy S. Foster
Tuesday, January 10, 2017

The story is about Ryn Whittaker who is a Citadel: an elite, enhanced soldier specially chosen to guard a Rift, a mysterious and dangerous portal to alternate Earths scientists cannot control or close. She was trained from the age of fourteen, and can run faster, jump farther, and fight better than a Navy SEAL.
 
After encountering another human from a different Earth, she begins to question what her and the other citadels real purpose is.  This questioning leads to some knowledge she needs to know but also changes many realities for her.  I look forward to the following books in this trilogy.
