Facing the Other Way cover

Facing the Other Way is available from Boularderie Island Press, Amazon, and Chapters.

In Facing the Other Way, Davies portrays a cast of idealistic housemates working toward a better world. In youth, with all of the innocence and naiveté of the ‘sixties, they rescue a pregnant girl from the street and take in abandoned babies. In the disenchantment and insecurity of middle age, one faces childhood guilt while another questions her relevance as a social worker. And through it all, when it counts, they are there for each other.
