Annie's Ghosts: a journey into a family secret

If you are looking for a great book to read, I highly recommend Steve Luxenbergs' 2009 book, Annie's Ghosts (New York: Hyperian).

We all love a good family history, but when one encounters a family secret, what course to take? Do we continue to hide the secret or do we dig in and try to make sense of what went on. The author finds many such mysteries and it leads to a wonderfully written story in its own right. After you read it, post your thoughts here.
