Biography & Memoir • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

This memoir, based on interviews Hempel conducted with her siblings and parents, is about change and growth. Hempel's lively narration perfectly captures that spirit of seeking as she recounts, with humor and some sadness, the events that helped her family members find their way back to each other. After Hempel and her father came out as gay, her brother as trans, her sister as bi, and her mother as the survivor of a traumatic event, they realized the secrets they'd all been keeping would eventually destroy them. The love Hempel feels for her family is apparent in the thoughtful, compassionate way she writes and speaks about them. This is a bighearted book about the work of healing, made even better by Hempel's warm and intimate narration. L.S. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2022]
