own act together. Thirty-seven, aimless, and having just
buried a famous mother she never understood, she is
desperate to uncover her family’s mysterious past in the
hopes that it will help her understand
Carrie’s search reveals the fascinating
life stories of her estranged grandmother Lu, a glamorous
Broadway star whose dreams came with a price; her great
grandmother Mifalda, who gave up everything to come to
America as a sixteen-year-old Italian bride; and her
father, Bobby, the charismatic Broadway genious who wrote
some of Lu’s greatest musicals and died tragically young.

her mother’s complicated life, and a dark secret that has
been buried for thirty years.
