Summary
"Sifting through old boxes and drawers upon her mother's death, Anya Yurchyshyn discovered artifacts of a life, a love affair, and glamorous people that she barely recognized - yet, these people were her parents. Letters, photos of exotic locales, startling documents, and passionate letters revealed stark evidence of a hidden past that forced her to reconstruct and reimagine everything she'd ever known about her life and her family. This is the account of one woman's relentless quest to solve the tragic and complex mysteries of her past."--Publisher's description
