Product Details


“Mullen’s earnest approach will keep readers engaged. Readers will find both governor and homesteader sturdy pandemic companions.”
–Kirkus Reviews

“This is a remarkable book. The story of how Maine governor Janet Mills and constituent Ashirah Knapp, a homesteader with young children, supported each other from a distance through the storms of the coronavirus pandemic, it is far more than just a record of those unsettled years. It captures both history and humanity as it tells the life stories of the two women who faced an unprecedented crisis and how they set a course through it. It is a story of work, worry, art, faith, community, life, and hope. An instant classic.”
–Heather Cox Richardson, author of How the South Won the Civil War

“A heartfelt and moving story . . . Just as important, it’s also a well-timed lesson in civics.”
–Richard Russo, author of Empire Falls

“This delightful book tells the compelling, intertwined stories of Governor Janet Mills and a young idealistic Mainer trying to do the right thing — one for her state and the other for her family — during a most difficult time, and it is a dramatic reminder that politicians need to do more than win elections and score points for their team; they need to lead.”
–Howard Dean, former governor of Vermont
