This book was sweet and quite captivating. I admit I was a bit skeptical at first when I realized it was sort of in memoir format, but it caught my attention right away and held it until the end!

It was a story of Pat’s life but told in such a way that it was very interesting, fun to follow, and easy to read. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It pulled me in, made me feel for the characters for the good and bad. Made me tear up, or smile, or hope for them.

It was a really great story and I would recommend it to anyone.

A tender tale of one woman’s search for her true identity.

As an adult Pat has assembled a loving family and a dear, dear husband, still she’d like to know whose child she was. She’d been discovered on a bed as an infant in a house that would later become her home. But it wasn’t a happy home. Although her adoptive father showered her with love and affection, her adoptive move was cold and almost cruel. In the

In the end, this is a story of a young woman’s life and how she builds it. Then, after her children are grown, how she returns to her past to discover who her real parents had been. It is a touching tale, well worth the read.

I got started reading it with the usual “I’ll just read the first couple of paragraphs,” trap. Uh-huh. Next thing I know, I’m a quarter of the way into it (my kindle lets me know where I am, percentage-wise in a book). Well, it was flowing pretty good, so I just let it keep goin’, and I kept on readin’. It was a fairly long session, but I finished it in one sitting because it was easy reading. Debbie White’s style is easy to follow and I just glide along with few hitches.

In this story, Pat is a middle-aged woman who is finally facing a mid-life crisis regarding her early life history. She was adopted, and in fact, her early life is shrouded in mystery and she has reason to suspect that family members have lied to her about her true life story all of her life. Now the uncertainty and questions have formed a noxious poison in her mind that have affected her mood about a half-century later. Pat and her husband are both private investigators and near retirement. This story tells of what they did to discover what they could about Pat’s family.

This was my first reading of any of Debbie White’s work, and I found the style to be rather smooth-flowing. Even though there are a lot of instances of unpleasant instances remembered by Pat from her childhood, she still had a happy, positive attitude–probably as a result of the strong presence of her loving father, and then her loving husband.This story really has several points of interest: 1) Pat’s upbeat attitude in spite of childhood abuse (from her mother figure) 2) the strong influence from the loving figures of her father and her husband 3) the elder care given by the loving children to Pat at the end of her life. I guess this is considered women’s fiction: a category I was never particularly fond of–but this story was a fascinating read for me, and I think it might be for you, too. I want to read more of her stuff to see if I like it as much as I liked this.
