But now, a long-forgotten photo leads to a startling revelation and Jasmine heads to Rachel's family reunion in Smackover, Arkansas, in search of answers. With her sidekick Mae Frances by her side, this big city girl isn't ready for the country…or Rachel's over-the-top family that may change her life forever.

In this courageous and captivating autobiography, Mór vividly captures his early experiences of dissociation from his true existence - a common reaction by children suffering from repeated abuse - and the various personas through which he lived through in his teens and early adulthood - the Mahjee, Charles P.

The rocky path towards discovering his true identity and finally accepting himself takes him on a spiritual pilgrimage via several different countries, once nearly getting caught unwittingly carrying drugs over the Moroccan border; forming relationships with people he meets but very often misjudges; to the revelation - the awakening - of love and acceptance.

Who among your circle of friends or family has not been caught up in one or more of these dilemmas: family problems, a difficult choice between an abortion or adoption, an unjust legal system or loss of career, drugs or alcohol dependency, a religious identity crisis or thoughts of suicide? Perhaps someone you know is a Holocaust victim or their descendant, or been touched by assimilation problems. It is all here, in a compelling saga, based on the lives of two Jewish families that converge over an adopted child. A sealed adoption agreement is breached, and the birth-mother and adoptive-mother are forced to confront each other's complicated histories. Spanning seventy years and two continents, the tragedies and triumphs of both families are woven together, ultimately leading to redemption. In recent years there have been a number of books written by a birth-mother forced to give up her child or by the adopted child reuniting with her biological parents. This book is unique. The Blessing and the Curse is written from my point of view, as the adoptive-mother, with the cooperation of the birth-mother and her family. It cracks open the facade of family life, digging deeper into who we are and why. Nothing happens in a vacuum. This saga poignantly reveals the ups and downs, the real life dramas, that funnel our choices and defines who we are.
