Josie Rankin about this book: My book is essentially a historical fiction and mystery based on family events. My parents were the source of inspiration. The two main characters, Consuelo and Sofia are based on myself and my sister. Many of the events in the book are based on things my father related to us. We found out after his death that he had worked for the government, possibly the OSS. My life is full of mystery and writing the book was a ways of resolving issues for me in that regard. Many of the events are very sad, some of them funny but always interesting. There are boomarangs everywhere in the book because that is what my life is like. The title of the book was an inspiration from my husband. He often says to me that it seems like I was raised in a box. In other words I am unaware of so many things that the average person knows about. It has to do with the way I was raised, very sheltered and protected. I am just now as an adult in my fifties finding out some of life's eccentricities. The book touches on many events during WW2 based on fact. It provides an alternate ending as to how Hitler died. My father provided the answer.
