Editorial Reviews

Review

"Takes us into the lives of the women of Miriam's House―homeless, black and living with AIDS―and gives them a much needed voice in a sometimes cruel and harsh world." ―Jesse J. Holland, author of The Invisibles and Black Men Built the Capitol

"Carol's memoir deepens the readers understanding of the complexities faced by women suffering from homelessness, AIDS and trauma. Her storytelling is vivid and compelling. One cannot enter into the stories she shares without being changed. I could not put Nowhere Else I Want to Be down." ―Killian Noe, Founding Director, Recovery Cafe, Seattle, Washington

"Marsh writes with joy and humor about her years coming face-to-face with the gritty, sometimes painful, often joyous realities of those we keep on the margins of our society." —David Hilfiker, MD, author of Healing the Wounds, Not All of Us Are Saints, and Urban Injustice

"Nowhere Else I Want to Be is not a book easily defined, as it balances perfectly the qualities of humor, love, sadness, disdain, and acceptance, combined into one spectacular memoir. Carol Marsh takes her readers on the same journey she once walked, alongside society's forgotten as they struggle to better themselves, contribute to communities who continuously reject them, and just survive, at any cost. It wasn’t, and still isn’t, easy, but it is forever worth it. Nowhere Else I Want to Be is a treasure as much as it is a tragedy, if for nothing else, for Carol's bold, dignified, and honest approach to a truth best not left forgotten." —Authors Talk About It 5-Star Review

"Nowhere Else I Want to Be is not a book easily defined, as it balances perfectly the qualities of humor, love, sadness, disdain, and acceptance, combined into one spectacular memoir. Carol Marsh takes her readers on the same journey she once walked, alongside society’s forgotten as they struggle to better themselves, contribute to communities who continuously reject them, and just survive, at any cost." —Authors Talk About It, 5-Star Review

"Nowhere Else I Want to Be is an inspiring read and Carol does an excellent job of presenting the women’s stories as genuinely and honestly as possible." —Readers' Favorite, 5-Star Review

"Marsh paints vivid word-pictures of the women of Miriam's House, enabling us to enter their lives as much as it is humanly possible to. And we come away from the book moved by both the story she tells and the honesty with which she tells it." —Tammy J. Banks, A&U Magazine
