LOVED AND WANTED: A Memoir of Choice, Children, and Womanhood by Christa Parravani
“Parravani (HER: A Memoir) begins her luminous, complex story with a memory—one that is visceral, yet metaphoric and sets the tone for this work, which proves a welcome addition to women’s narratives with its willingness to address poverty, sexuality, spirituality, and the difficult choices women are forced to make when navigating oppressive systems.”–Library Journal
