Stegner Fellowship at Stanford University, and a Fine Arts Work Center Provincetown Fellowship.

An epic story that unfolds over four decades, this haunting novel follows Andrea on her personal journey to discover the true identity of her father. Taking place in Santa Cruz, California; San Remo, Italy; Paris, France; and a small town in North Carolina, this is a moving story of two families and their battles and conflicts as they explore the meanings and boundaries of kinship.
