Twenty-four-year-old Marie Marchetti has just experienced a life-altering
revelation—the identity of her real father. As she packs for her first visit with
him and his family, she wonders how her life is about to change, how they will
receive her, and what she will learn about her own identity.
A lot happens as a result of Marie’s Thanksgiving visit, and in her search for
peace and truth in her life, she quickly learns that disparate lives can
converge and interact in profound and surprising ways. But ironically the
most consequential outcome of her visit unexpectedly grows out of an
encounter with a twelve-year-old girl named Rachael.
Civil rights, gender roles, and political postures are carefully,
realistically, and sensitively present in this story.
