To change the world, you need to take risks. That's something Carol Schwartz knows bone deep. And it's something she's prepared to do. She learned about risk as a girl when her father never came back from the Vietnam war. Now a Berkeley-educated idealist, Carol tutors high school and engages in community activism in Oakland. A Jewish lesbian, she's learned to take risks of her own. Across the years -- from the mid-80s to the post-9/11 world -- the stakes get ever higher and her gambles more desperate, until finally Carol finds out what's left when the last gamble is lost.
