Description


A Stranger At My Door is a personal odyssey of challenge, failure, and redemption. A man in desperate crisis appears at the doorstep of a family home in the Sonoran desert. Attempts to do the right thing--to provide food, clothing, shelter--are hampered by the politics of fear and xenophobia. Taking a stand on the side of compassion, Peg Bowden, a retired nurse and humanitarian aid worker, explores the ethical and moral values that drive her life choices, which at this particular moment in time, do not align with the politics of her homeland. This is a tale of a relationship between two people whose very differences about the "other" forge a friendship that transcends the borders of their lives.
