"First out, it must be said that Lavender is a talent. She writes excellently and her prose has something hypnotic about it. It is gorgeous and the author has this ability to lead readers into the mind of her protagonist that is rare. Readers will sympathize with the protagonist as they watch her evolve through the powerful psychological conflict. This is a very entertaining and engaging story that will draw tears from the eyes of many. " - Goodreads, Romuald

Micah Winters always knew that she was different. It was the pigment of her skin and the texture of her hair that revealed that she was a woman from biracial parents. For five decades, Micah’s African American mother has remained silent about Micah’s estranged father (Sidney Irving). It is not until after Sidney Irving’s death that Micah learns that she is the daughter of the legendary novelist and screenwriter.
Now with her mother’s memory fading away from Alzheimer’s disease, Micah can only rely on a novel that was written from her father years ago to understand her parents past during the time of segregation in the United States. Micah’s once simple life is not so simple anymore as she tries to make sense of an unfamiliar world as she inherits her father’s wealth and private past.
With an abandoned heart, Micah must forgive the past in order to discover who she really is.
