Synopsis

This poignant, coming-of-age story follows young Maura Conlon through her childhood journey in Los Angeles in the 1960s and 1970s. Growing up in a large Irish-Catholic family mostly held together by commitment to her youngest brother, Joey, born with Down syndrome, Maura struggles to find her place in the world. She is fascinated by mysteries, a fascination fed by the elusive world of her FBI agent father. Her dream growing up was to follow his path and crack "the code" that made his world so lusciously impenetrable. At her Catholic school, Maura is known as the shy girl. Her beloved uncle, Father Jack, a priest in Queens, N.Y., relates to Maura, always assuring her of her potential, helping her to find her "voice." This enchanting story, told through Maura's inquisitive eyes and reflective and imaginative mind, is a highly moving account of personal growth and family trials and triumphs.
