Overview

Acceptance struggles to emerge from a cocoon of family secrets . . .


After her parents' divorce in 1974, Lisa Lucca's idyllic Midwestern childhood is shattered when she learns her father is gay. Sworn to secrecy, she begins carrying the emotions of her family like a cracked bucket, making a mess as she embarks on a life of rebellious choices.


Decades later, faced with the aftermath of her father's death, Lisa revisits the complicated relationship she had with him, delving deeper into the stories she's held about love, sexuality, and the family she comes from with a shimmering clarity that arises from her grief. 


A story of heartache and the power of forgiveness, Ashes to Ink shines a light on the challenges of living true to who we are.
