Amelie Fried narrates the gripping story of a family secret full of destructive power
Everything in Holly Berger's life seems to be right. She is married to her childhood sweetheart, the likeable cabinetmaker Chris, has two children and writes successful self-help books.
Then one day, in her parents' house, she makes a discovery that completely throws her off course. She accidentally comes across some documents that prove that, as a newborn baby, she had been abandoned by her mother and shortly afterwards adopted. Stunned and shocked, Holly first tries to pretend that nothing has happened. When, however, she finds out that even her husband knew the secret, she realizes she can't go on like this. She sets out to find her roots, and her detailed research takes her not only to Egypt but also to the mysterious and distressing story of her family.
