The Third Law explores what is required for chronically unemployed and impoverished women to create new lives for themselves. It focuses on the

societal obstacles that must be overcome and the internal demons that must be squelched. Most of all, the book argues for a more compassionate view of recovering addicts, convicted felons, and victims of domestic abuse.


Sometimes, believing in another person’s potential is all it takes to create

lasting change.
