Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 099154692X, Paperback)

Belief Is Its Own Kind of Truth, Maybe is a book about mapping lives--the lives we are born with and the lives we are allowed to make for ourselves.

Belief is part adoption narrative and part meditation on family, motherhood, nature vs. nurture, and what it means to make our own authentic human connections.

Belief extends the possibilities of creative nonfiction at a time when many people are talking about what exactly truth-in-memoir means. The book's patchwork form mirrors the fragmented experience of being an adoptee confronting--and trying to heal--her roots.

Belief is the story of one woman's search for her birth mother coupled with the parallel story of her own motherhood and re-making. It's about what it means to be a mother, what it's like to have two very different blood connections, and what it means to form a family.

Belief is about searching for roots and what that means, exactly. It's about finding a balance between the families we're born into and the ones we make ourselves.
