Although I prepared myself the best I could for the long-awaited reunion, it was actually upsetting and uncomfortable for me in ways I didnt anticipate. Annie Parker didnt slam any doors in my face, but she was tough, cold, and blatantly disdainful of my education and my upbringing. The reality of my birth had shattered the fairy tale of possibilities Id spent a lifetime creating.Faye works in New Yorks fashionable and cutthroat cooking-show industry, where the people are as disposable as overripe fruit. She is sharp, hip, and wisely discreet. Although scarred by the tragic deaths of her adoptive parents and her fiance-who was killed in the 9/11 attacks-she keeps her private life and its heartbreaks to herself.When Fayes therapist suggests that she locate her birth mother, the long-awaited reunion does not go as planned. Annie Parker is a shady alcoholic who will do anything to try to cut her newfound daughter down to size. The wise course of action would be for Faye to walk away and forget the past. But will she be able to turn her back on her mothers final, harrowing call for help?
