About the author:
Florence Osmund grew up in an old Victorian home in Illinois, complete with a coach house-the same house she used as inspiration for her first two books. Following a satisfying career working in large corporations, she retired to write novels. "I garner inspiration for my books by observing and listening to ordinary people," she says. "Then I let my imagination dig deeper until a higher concept is reached." Osmund currently resides in downtown Chicago on the beautiful shore of Lake Michigan.

Some people intentionally mislead others about their ethnicity. Marie did it unknowingly.
Discovering the identity of your real father can be life-altering. Just ask Marie. At twenty-six, she is about to meet her father for the first time and sit down to Thanksgiving dinner with him and his family.
As she packs her suitcase, Marie wonders how her newfound family will receive her and what she will learn about them…and their ethnicity. While she realizes that her life will change because of them—it is not knowing just how much that scares her.
Will Marie find the peace and truth in her life that she so desperately needs, or is it unrealistic for her to think that such disparate lives can freely converge in 1940s middle America? She quickly learns that the answer to that question is not going to come easily.
A lot happens as a result of Marie’s visit, but ironically the most significance consequence grows out of an encounter with a twelve-year-old neighbor girl named Rachael.
