Lorrie Edmonds was given up for adoption as just a newborn.

As an adult she came to realize she wanted to know about her birth parents, but over time gave up hope of ever finding them. Lorrie knows some scattered details about her “bio parents,” but by the time she reaches middle age, the dream of reuniting slowly fades.

And then, out of nowhere: an e-mail.

What unfolds next is an emotional journey that takes Lorrie from her home in Montreal to the edge of the Pacific Ocean.
