Fleur Hamilton is a botanist with an important project and a pending grant. She is also in a relationship that has taken a critical turn. Life isn't turning out to be as simple as she had hoped. Then, she enters her fourth decade and loses her Aunt Golda. Suddenly, Fleur discovers that nothing is as she believed it to be. Ever the scientist, she becomes obsessed with discovering the truth about her aunt, and about her own roots. As she slowly uncovers her parents' Hippie era lives and her Aunt Golda's past as a Holocaust survivor, their stories become her own. Fleur is thrust into a crossroads, forced to make a horrific decision. Her unearthed heritage strengthens her as it directs her, and the past becomes her tutor to the future. Peace and love, hatred and pain, all become her reality. As these opposing worlds converge, Fleur must discover herself. Only then will she be able to deal with her broken relationship, and with her future.

* more than 150$ is a direct donation from a supporter of the Rainbow Awards who isn't submitting; while some authors were more than generous, arriving to donate 5 times the suggested amount, being the submission fee a non mandatory and voluntary direct donation, we were struggling to raise the same amount as last year and there is who decided to cover part of it. I thank you for all you are doing, and if you wish to donate to the above links, please drop me a note with your donation and I will update the total.
