Synopsis from Goodreads:
Willie stands on the brink of womanhood poised to follow in her mother’s footsteps, with a gleaming future as an artist looming before her, and a maturity beyond her years that has enabled her to be the protector and caretaker of others, a mender of wounds. But as a devastating illness rips her mother from her life, Willie is left bereft of a home and of a sense of self. Guided only by her instincts, Willie wanders from her Professor’s arms to the home that Xavier shares with his live-in girlfriend Nicole (who insists that they can “share”). Her path becomes a search for peace, for family, for a love that’s real, and for her place in this world.
Finding What Is chronicles the journey that we all must take-to find ourselves, to reconcile our past, and to get back to that place we once called home.
The strong, emotionally infused characters really pull at your heart. They are all going through a large number of issues and deal with them in a number of ways. They are well developed individuals, even if you may find them over the top at the time.
This is a very powerful and pensive novel. This is not a light read, but it’s a very intriguing one. It takes commitment but is worth the effort.
