Diedre McAlister's mother is dying. But before she lets go of this life, she gives her daughter and old photograph and these parting words: "Find yourself. Find your truth. Just don't expect it to be what you thought it would be." And now the search begins-a quest to find the only person who can provide the missing pieces, the truth. But that search will cost Diedre her naive innocence and expose her family's unknown dark side. It was a very good book from the very beginning.
My second book by Penelope Stokes and was captured almost from the first page into the story. I loved their roadtrip on the way to Seattle and how they visit some of America's most tackiest places. Sounds like something I would enjoy doing. Looking forward to reading more of Stokes in the future!
I guess I have read too many books about "family secrets" because I knew from the outset what the secret was. So I found this book very dull. Even though it is about a sad situation, the subject has been over discussed. It was well written. It's just tht I had heard the story before.
Before 25 yr old Diedre McAlister's mother dies she shares with her a box containing a picture of her older sister who has not been talked about since she was small. Everyone said she was no longer living. Her mothers parting words were "Find yourself.Find your truth.Don't expect it to be what you thought it would be.
So begins a search for the truth. Some good mystery involved and the end keeps you guessing.
