Carol D. Marsh founded, directed, and lived at Miriam's House, a Washington, DC, residence for homeless women living with AIDS. In this powerful memoir, Marsh recalls how she came to confront issues far removed from her own experience: addiction, poverty, and the institutional racism that permeates our society on every level. From the humorous to the tragic, the mundane to the sublime, Marsh offers a gripping view into a world where the stakes are high and love is pushed to its limit.

Nowhere Else I Want to Be is the story of the inspiring women who transformed Marsh's life. From Kimberly, who triumphs over a lifelong alcohol addiction, to Alyssa, who dies reaching out for the mother who abandoned her, Marsh witnesses the spectrum of human experience and the depth of the human spirit.

Editorial Reviews

"A treasure." -Authors Talk About It (5-Star Review) "Spellbinding." -Readers Favorite (5-Star Review) "Unforgettable." -Book Review Directory (5-Star Review) "Nowhere Else I Want to Be is a treasure as much as it is a tragedy, if for nothing else, for Carol's bold, dignified, and honest approach to a truth best not left forgotten. . [It's] not a book easily defined, as it balances perfectly the qualities of humor, love, sadness, disdain, and acceptance, combined into one spectacular memoir." -Authors Talk About It (5-Star Review) "An inspiring read. [Marsh] does an excellent job of presenting the women's stories as genuinely and honestly as possible." -Readers' Favorite (5-Star Review) "Beautifully written... describes the harsh realities that homeless women living with AIDS face. [Marsh] gives the women of Miriam's House a voice to share their untold stories-some of hope, but most of tragedy-with an elegance that makes her memoir unforgettable." -Book Review Directory (5-Star Review) "Marsh paints vivid word-pictures of the women of Miriam's House, enabling us to enter their lives as much as it is humanly possible to. And we come away from the book moved by both the story she tells and the honesty with which she tells it." -Tammy J. Banks, A&U Magazine
