Author Florence Osmundabout this book: Imagine growing up thinking you are white and then finding out your real father is not.

It is the year 1949, and twenty-four-year-old Marie Marchetti has just discovered the identity of her multiracial father, Jonathan Brooks, the father she never knew. Marie grew up in Chicago, the only child of a single mother, having had very little contact with people of other races, making her current situation more than just a little daunting.

Marie hopes the invitation from Jonathan to spend two weeks with her newfound family over Thanksgiving will help uncover vital truths about herself that her now deceased mother had never shared with her. But the visit has potential for being disastrous, since Jonathan had only recently acknowledged Marie?s existence to his wife of thirty-one years and their three grown sons.

Discovering her father also means discovering her own ethnicity. Despite Marie's olive skin, nut brown eyes, and dark wavy hair, she has easily and unknowingly passed for white her entire life. Her strong need to understand who she really is and where she belongs drives her to form an intimate connection with her new family, transcend the prejudices of friends and strangers, and seek peace and truth in her life.
