Abstract:

Growing up, Nora Watts only knew one parent - her father. When he killed himself, she denied her grief and carried on with her life. Then a chance encounter with a veteran raises disturbing questions Nora can't ignore. Finding the truth about her father's life and his violent death takes her from Vancouver to Detroit. Thanks to a disastrous government policy starting in the 1950s, thousands of Canadian native children like Sam Watts were adopted by American families. In the Motor City, Nora discovers that the circumstances surrounding Sam's suicide are more unsettling than she'd imagined.
