Growing up in a prosperous neighborhood, B. Morrison was taught that poverty was a product of laziness and public assistance programs only rewarded irresponsibility. However, when her marriage soured, she abruptly found herself an impoverished single mother. Disowned by her parents and facing destitution for herself and her two small sons, she was forced to accept the handout so disdained by her parents and their world: welfare. This dramatic memoir tells how one woman finds and grasps the lifeline that ultimately enables her to become independent.

B. Morrison is the author of a poetry collection entitled Here at Least, and is currently working on a novel. Visit her website and blog at

Ms. Morrison provides a well-written and compelling description of her experience of poverty and the ways we, as a society, provide for and shun those among us who need temporary help. Her determiniation and resiliance is impressive. Her book provided iimportant insights into a life I am grateful not to have experienced myself!
