Grace Taylor opens the letter she receives with trembling hands. She knows the words she is about to read will either cause her great happiness or heart-wrenching despair. On her tenth birthday she discovered she was not only adopted, but the daughter of a part-aboriginal woman. She has felt lost and unloved ever since. Will finding her mother bring an end to these feelings? Or, will she discover that she must make a choice, between proudly accepting her aboriginality or turning her back and walking away from the one man who will bring her lasting happiness and peace?
