Summary
"Lara Reid knew she was an alien. What other explanation could there be? With her dark complexion and kinky hair, so unlike her fair-skinned parents, Lara knew she was different. At eight she finally learned the word 'adopted'. Twenty-two years later, a stranger arrives as she blows out the candles on her thirtieth birthday cake; a woman in a blue-and-black head tie who also claims the title 'Lara's mother'. Lara, always in control, now finds her life slipping free of the stranglehold she's had on it. Unexpected, dangerously unfamiliar emotions are turning Lara's life upside down, pulling her between Nigeria and London, forcing her to confront the truth about her past. But if she's brave enough to embrace the lives of her two mothers, she may discover once and for all what it truly means to be Lara." -- Provided by publisher
Summary
When her birth mother, Yomi, arrives from Africa, thirty-year-old Lara Reid must face the truth of her past and the lives of her mothers, which brings about dangerously unfamiliar emotions that take her completely by surprise
