Dorothea's father, like all good parents, wanted to keep his children safe. But unlike other parents, Charles O'Brien believed the only way to do so was to leave everything behind, including his very successful life. In a rocky, desolate corner of New Mexico, on a 35 acre estate he called the Sanctuary, Charles raised the children in complete isolation, with books and encyclopedias, records and a grand piano, but no television, computer, radio, or even a newspaper. Now, Dorothea, at 23, is leaving this place for the first time, in search of her missing brother - and venturing into the world.

Dorothea's search will turn into an odyssey of discovery, leading to the truth of her family's past and the terrifying day that changed her father forever. But Dorothea's journey will also introduce her to an unusual cast of characters, including a homeless girl from Missouri who becomes a jazz singer and a doctor turned cabdriver who has suffered his own losses. Together, they have a chance to make a discovery of a different kind: that though a heart can be broken by the tragic events of a day, a day can also bring a new chance at love and a deeper understanding of life's infinite possibilities.

    " This is the third book I've read by Lisa Tucker. I love her writing style and ability to develop characters; by the end of her novels, I really feel like I know each of the individuals personally. What I don't love, however, is that the stories aren't very realistic. They start out okay, but towards the end I'm left feeling that things would have turned out quite differently in real life. "

    " Very interesting plot with fascinating questions presented. A quick page turner. I would want to give this more stars but it is rather sophomorically written, without tremendous depth to the characters or insightful dialogue. Nevertheless, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and am haunted by some of the themes. So maybe I would give it a 4 . . hmmmm "
