A story of family.  Elena Richardson and her family have always lived their well ordered lives in Shaker Heights  Four teenage children, a well-respected husband, all is as it should be.  Along comes artist Mia Warren and her daughter Pearl.  Mia and Pearl travel from place to place, Mia earning a living where she can to support Pearl and her art. Mia also has a well-kept secret.

The Richardson and Warren families became emeshed in many ways, however friendships are fractured when old family friends of the Richardsons attempt to adopt a Chinese-American baby girl.  A custody battle ensues - and puts Mia and Elena on opposing sides.  Suspicious of Mia and her motives, Elena is determined to uncover the secrets in Mia's past.  But at what cost?  A great read.
