Love in Condition Yellow
A Memoir of an Unlikely Marriage
Narrated by Beth Richmond
Approximately 9 hours
Book published by Beacon Press
A Berkeley progressive, an army reservist cop, their two kids, a bipartisan dog—and how the Iraq War affects them all. Berkeley peace activist Sophia Raday never imagined she would fall in love with an Oakland police officer and major in the Army Reserve, much less marry one. Barrett is loving and loyal, but in his world a threat lies around every corner, and so he asks Sophia to stay in Condition Yellow—always aware that her life may be in danger soon. Sophia's heart-wrenching yet humorous narrative about coming to a new understanding of peace and partnership gives hope for healing the deep divisions in our country, from the front lines of a most unusual union.
Sophia Raday lives in Berkeley, California, with her soldier/police officer husband, their two children, a bipartisan dog, and assorted firearms. She studied International Relations at Stanford University and Public Policy at the University of California at Berkeley. A founding editor of Literarymama.com, Raday's writing has recently appeared in The New York Times and in two anthologies.
