In the memoir When the World Breaks Open, Seema Reza chronicles her journey from being a suburban mom to using her own lessons to build a unique writing and art program in military hospitals. Using a non-linear narrative, Reza exposes her triumphs and fears and regret through the dissolution of a dysfunctional marriage, and investigates her own experiences and societal attitudes towards loss, love, motherhood and community, undermining the idea that strength requires silence.
