Meredith Hall's moving but unsentimental memoir begins in 1965, when she becomes pregnant at sixteen. What sets Without a Map apart is the way in which loss and betrayal evolve into compassion, and compassion into wisdom.

"Hall emerges as a brave writer of tumultuous beauty."
—Alanna Nash, Entertainment Weekly
