Kyo Maclear gently shares the story she uncovered after she learned that her English father's DNA does not match hers. Her candid tone nurtures a desire to accompany her as she unearths secrets of her dying mother--in particular, her parents' infidelities--and struggles to find compassion and forgiveness. Maclear's curiosity comes through clearly when she describes gazing at pictures of her Japanese mother's young beauty and searching for aspects of her own face in her biological father's Russian Jewish features. With Maclear's distinct delivery, the motif of gardening that runs through the audiobook brings listeners--and the author--respite and insights. Both her writing and reading allow listeners to experience the richness of truths blossoming in the light. S.W. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2023]
