Author Florence Osmundabout this book: 1945 Chicago. Newlyweds Marie Marchetti and her husband, Richard, have the perfect life together. Or at least it seems until Marie discovers he is mixed up with some of Chicago's most nefarious characters. When she inadvertently interrupts a meeting between Richard and his so-called business associates in their home, he causes her to fall down the basement steps, compelling Marie to run for her life.

Ending up in Atchison, Kansas, Marie quickly sets up a new life for herself. She meets Karen Franklin, a woman who will become her lifelong best friend, and rents a coach house apartment behind a three-story Victorian home. Ironically, it is the discovery of the identity of her real father and his ethnicity that unexpectedly changes her life more than Richard ever could.

• "The reason why the book is so captivating is that it focuses on more than just the woman's role and her relationship with a controlling man. We also gain an insight into what life would be like if you suddenly found that your ethnicity was under question." –Review by
