Gil Martins, an agent with the FBI’s Domestic Terrorism Unit in Houston, confronts the violence generated by extremism every day.

A few years ago Thomas launched a website for women to connect, share stories, and help each other “re-invent.” And she says the aim was to reassure all of them that it’s never too late to get un-stuck.Now she’s collected the stories of dozens of women in a new book called “It Ain’t Over . . . Till It’s Over”
