As a child, Susan Silverman was surrounded by a loving family; although her parents weren’t happily married, they were devoted to their kids. In a vibrant, funny, imminently relatable voice (think Anne Lamott meets Katrina Kenison), Silverman tells of a family’s evolution - from her parents’ devastating loss of their infant son to raising bright and wildly unique daughters. It’s also the creation story of her own family - raising her own bright and wildly unique daughters and taking a journey to adopt two boys from Ethiopia.

A meditation on identity, faith, and belonging, peppered with laugh-out-loud moments, Casting Lots will resonate with anyone who has struggled to find their place in the world, to understand the significance of that place, and to sustain a family amid the world’s chaos.
