Genre: Women's Sagas, Women's Romance Fiction
4.4 stars, 5000+ ratings

DNA can connect Gwen back to her biological family, but will the secrets they are hiding be too much to handle?

"Stewart has a knack for creating rich, complicated characters. One standout is Leslie's daughter, Kerry, who is defiantly vocal about the issues within her family and laudably supportive of her mother. The author treads carefully around the subject of adoption, respectfully noting systematic issues while preserving the emotional complexities of Gwen's experience. Another intriguing feature is the romantic subplot." ~Kirkus Reviews
