In these lyrical meditations in prose and poetry, Marjorie Agosin evokes the many places on four continents she has visited or called home. Recording personal and spiritual voyages, the author opens herself to follow the ambiguous, secret map of her memory, which does t betray. Through Agosin's memories and reflections on exodus, migration, and moving beyond the familiar we learn what can be found when we journey with openness, as approachable to strangers as we are to ourselves.
