Almost Home: A Memoir

by Hilary Harper

While snooping in a closet as an adolescent, Hilary Harper discovers a secret: her parents are not her parents. Documents reveal her mother to be a vague, distant relative who died in a car crash. Her father is “unknown.” Vividly depicting the suburban Detroit neighborhood of her childhood, and the relentless search for her paternal roots as an adult, Harper’s memoir culminates in a DNA test that delivers unexpected results. A compelling, and ultimately triumphant story, Almost Home illustrates how strong the longing for an authentic identity can be, and how the choices made by one generation can have a lasting impact on the next.
