On her eighteenth birthday, genetic information from Lee Parker's closed adoption is unlocked. She also sees an old photograph of a genetic relative, a nineteenth Century woman with hair and eyes likes hers, standing in a pile of rubble from an ecological disaster next to none other than Clara Barton, the founder of the American Red Cross. Determined to identify the woman in the photo and unearth the mystery of that captured moment, Lee digs into history. Her journey takes her from California to Johnstown, Pennsylvania, from her present financial woes to her past of privilege, from the daily grind to an epic disaster. Once Lee's heroic DNA is revealed, will she decide to forge a new fate?

I loved this book and the way a past and present life are intertwined. When I put this book down I wanted to pick it up again and hope there was more to read! The writing was amazing. Not only did it keep me wanting to keep turning the pages but the prose was beautiful.
