After her father and stepmother's accidental death, Kelli Huddleston sorts through their belongings and learns a shocking secret. Years before, her father faked his death during a boat wreck at sea – and faked Kelli's as well. He'd run from a wife, a son, and a daughter back in Tennessee, meaning Kelli has a family she's never known.
She's already cashed the payout on her dad's life insurance check and looks at it as her ticket to a new life. The lure and puzzle of digging into this hidden past is too much to resist, and she soon finds herself in Tennessee. When the trip threatens to open doors to the past better left shut, and her plans for the future are threatened, Kelli must make an agonizing choice that will change her life forever.
Kathryn Cushman’s Finding Me takes unsuspecting Kelli Huddleston on a life-altering journey of discovery. Her father recently died in a tragic accident, and as she sorts through his belongings, Kelli discovers he spent years keeping secrets and lying about the family she never met. She then travels across the country to get to know her mother and siblings and, as the title suggests, finds a bit about herself, too. I really enjoyed following Kelli throughout this novel, and I found it really hard to put down. I look forward to reading more from Kathryn Cushman in the future.
