I am in tears after finishing Uncovered. Leah, it is stunning. You wrote your story honestly, compassionately, and skillfully. It is a grand accomplishment. You are rightfully proud and—may I say this?—somewhere far beyond all earthly pain, I feel your mother must surely be cartwheeling with pride. Even, and also, your Daddy too. You have, indeed, transcended that past and come home at last to open arms. But now your home is so much larger than the walls of your current home and those long-gone ones in Dallas. Now home is the world. You have thrown open other doors and shown other women, wherever they may be, covered still and huddled with their secrets, there is another way. Now they share your house. You spoke your truth. You split the world open.
