In her early thirties, Ellen discovered what she never knew: she was not her father's daughter; her real identity a guarded secret. She fought for her success, battled addictions, and raised two remarkable children alone in spite of the legacy of shame. For a secret love child, the toughest battle was within. Just when she thought all was conquered, there was one final revelation.... Clarion Review: "O'Neill s writing is clear and crisp. The true hallmark of the book is her relentless honesty. She hides nothing...The book will serve as a startling and chilling but, ultimately, healing mirror for people who have endured dysfunctional family relationships, battled substance abuse, or wrestled with secret horror and shame.... Enjoyable."
