Carmel, a 40-year-old Irish woman, is living a life that's fine, not exciting or awful, just fine. She has a house, a husband, it's all okay. She never had kids, but that's just life, right? She knows she should be grateful. She's better off than a lot of people.
Then one day, out of the blue, she gets a Facebook message from a total stranger with information that could transform her life, for better or for much worse. It could be a scam. It could be malicious. It could be a crazy person.
But what if what they say is true?
Her finger hovers over the screen. Delete or reply?
In this gripping story, Carmel begins a journey of discovery that takes her back to a time long before she was born when love and loyalty, betrayals and secrets decided her fate. The reality of her true story is both shocking and heartwarming, and Carmel learns that in order to go forward, she must first make peace with her past.
