For Maggie Rayburn--wife, mother, and longtime secretary at a munitions plant--life is pleasant, predictable, and, she assumes, secure. When she finds proof of a high-level cover-up on her boss's desk, she impulsively takes it, an act that turns her world, and her worldview, upside down. Propelled by a desire to do good--and also by a newfound taste for excitement--Maggie starts to see injustice everywhere. Soon, her bottom drawer is filled with what she calls "evidence," her small town has turned against her, and she must decide how far she will go for the truth. NOW AND AGAIN is a blazingly original novel about the interconnectedness of lives, the limits of knowledge, and the consequences of doing the right thing.
