In Where? Xavy, the endearing narrator of Who? is invited by Grace, her old friend from the Baltimore women's community, to investigate the disappearance of a friend's daughter. Their reunion in Vermont after twenty years of separation provides the home base for an inquiry leading Xavy high and low, from coast to coast, and beyond. Issues of faith, mercy and redemption play out within a contemporary tangle of belief systems and allegorical exploration.In the process Xavy and Grace and their friends examine remnants of feminist activism as well as recent issues like marriage equality for lesbians and gays, and the rise of the occupy movement. Throughout Where? Xavy provides insightful and amusing commentary on current issues, as well as themes of place, belonging, and home. As Xavy and Grace renew the friendship between them, they reflect, from the perspective of aging, upon the trajectories and rewards of their unconventional lives.
