We all know of particular relationships that make others wonder how they work. The republican married to the democrat or the cat whose two best friends are ducks.

But somehow they do, and when they do intriguing communities come into being giving us hope. Jean Schroeder and Holly Johnson discuss these relationships through books that highlight them.
