Mary always had a big idea of herself. Ambitious. Inspired by great causes. But she’s arrived at a certain age wondering why she’s accumulated so many stories about breaking away. The grand exit: I’m outta here!

Mary digs into her history: sometimes she is paralyzed by dangling indecision; sometimes she is marching off into the crazy unknown. Sometimes she is bold and sometimes, timid and ridiculous.

Then other voices demand to be heard -- the voices of her foremothers. They have stories too. And their stories, it turns out, are Mary’s power.

Women with moxie turn discontent into action.
