A DNA test can uproot one’s sense of self.

For Kyo Maclear it meant that her recently passed father wasn’t who she thought, and her mother had secrets to share… or not. She finds herself investigating her own life. This memoir tracks the journey by the seasons and Maclear uses shared time in the garden to try and draw out her mother’s part in her story. This is a poetic exploration and restructuring of self over time as Maclear absorbs what truths she can find about her unknown parentage, her parents' marriage, and her mother’s life. 
Additionally, McLear reads the audiobook wonderfully!
