Publisher's Summary

Three women, three lives, and one chance to become a family...whether they want to or not.
Newly orphaned, recently divorced, and semiadrift, Nina Popkin is on a search for her birth mother. She's spent her life looking into strangers' faces, fantasizing they're related to her, and now, at thirty-five, she's ready for answers.
Meanwhile, the last thing Lindy McIntyre wants is someone like Nina bursting into her life, announcing that they're sisters and campaigning to track down their mother. She's too busy with her successful salon, three children, beautiful home, and...oh yes, some pesky little anxiety attacks.
But Nina is determined to reassemble her birth family. Her search turns up Phoebe Mullen, a guarded, hard-talking woman convinced she has nothing to offer. Gradually sharing stories and secrets, the three women make for a messy, unpredictable family that looks nothing like Nina pictured...but may be exactly what she needs. Nina's moving, ridiculous, tragic, and transcendent journey becomes a love story proving that real family has nothing to do with DNA.

So good. Not your typical coming of age

First off, I typically enjoy anything narrated by Amy McFadden. Honestly, it’s why I chose this book. So glad I did.

It really isn’t your typical coming of age story. The main character is in her 30s, a grown woman a bit of a mess after losing her adopted mother. Feeling alone in the world sets on a mission to find her birth mother. She goes on her own journey and well... just read it or listen. It’s so good. I loled and teared up at times.

Amy McFadden does such a great job with each of the characters and getting into their characters. I want to listen again.

What a beautiful story!

It made laugh like a loo in public, by glassy-eyed during household chores, and struggle to stay awake to hear what Nina did next. A truly moving story that anyone with family (related by blood or heart) can identify with. Just beautiful!
