They say there’s no greater joy in life than parenthood. There was nothing that Mary craved more than to become a mother. A trip to a fertility doctor, though, turned her life upside down, pushing her down an endless corridor of adoption agencies that did little to welcome her, or her husband, Jack. Mary was just about to give up hope, until a coincidence sent her knocking on a strange man’s door. Michael, the director of a suburban adoption agency, welcomed her and Jack. For the first time in a long time, Mary had hope. Even though she had never heard of Michael’s agency before, she welcomed her new child, only to unlock a whole set of mysteries.
Aaron Clark has everything he could possibly want; doting parents, a kid sister Kiara, and aside from the constant moving (8 cities in three years), there’s nothing more he could possibly want except for answers. The older he gets, the more he can’t help but feel like he doesn’t belong. Beyond the fact that he looks nothing like his parents, he also has an inherited genetic condition, something neither of his parents have.
In spite of their reassurances, Aaron is convinced something is amiss, but every time he goes in search of clues, he comes up empty-handed until he finally decides to give it up. Years later on the cusp of graduation, Aaron finally learns the truth, that he and his sister are adopted, and it’s only through her quest to find her family that he can begin to learn the truth.
As a college senior, Aaron thought he was ready for the truth he’s spent so long dreaming about, but when he confronts his parents, it’s nothing like what he expected, and he discovers that his questions can unravel everything including a life that the Clarks worked hard to build, and the secrets that threaten to tear their family apart. Now, as a teacher, and with a family of his own, he enlists Kiara’s help, following a trail that has long since gone cold, and a slew of questions with no answers.
Aaron will work to bring the truth to light, and in the process, learn that the truth isn’t always better than the lie.
