|Summary, etc.:||Lisa Genova meets 23andMe in this exploration of the genetic and emotional ties that bind, as debut author Julie Clark delivers a compelling read about a young boy desperate to find his place in this world, a mother coming to terms with her own past, and the healing power of forgiveness. The powerful forces of science and family collide when geneticist Paige Robson finds her world in upheaval: Her eight-year-old son Miles is struggling to fit in at his new school and begins asking questions about his biological father that Paige canât answerâuntil fate thrusts the anonymous donor she used into their lives. Paigeâs carefully constructed life begins to unravel as the truth of Milesâs paternity threatens to destroy everything she has grown to cherish. As Paige slowly opens herself upâby befriending an eccentric mother, confronting her own deeply buried vulnerabilities, and trying to make sense of her absent fatherâs unexpected returnâshe realizes breakthroughs arenât only for the lab. But when tragedy strikes, Paige must face the consequences of sharing a secret only she knows. With grace and humor, Julie Clark shows that while the science is fascinating, solving these intimate mysteries of who we are and where we come from unleashes emotions more complex than the strands of DNA that shape us.|
