A moving family saga about the secret to living free! Donna Greco wants nothing more than happiness for her brother, Vincent, whom she perceives as sad and lost as he remains single, childless, living in boarding homes or cramped apartments, and working low-paying jobs she thinks are beneath him. She subscribes to a conventional view of life and despite her tireless efforts of encouraging him to do the same, he chooses to go his own way. She harbors guilt for her supposed failure to ensure his happiness until she discovers a book of sketches he made of his life, which allows her to see his internal joy. She also discovers something else in her brother's drawings that changes her entire outlook on life and fuels her desire to live authentically. But she is pulled back into her secure existence for fear of the unknown. What does she discover and will she be able to break free of her self-made prison and live life on her own terms? Read this generational saga spanning decades and filled with endearing characters, great humor, and nostalgia to find out. Reviewers have called this story "profound, thought-provoking, funny, inspiring, and beautiful." Notable New York Times author Lidia Yuknavitch has called this book, "hugely moving, beautifully rendered, and brilliant."
