about herself and her family.

Nell on a quest to find out the truth about their history, their family
and their past; little knowing that in the process, she will also
discover a new life for herself. From Goodreads.
A bit confusing in the start with all the jumping back and forth in time but really intriguing. I kept thinking I knew how it all happened but I kept being wrong! I like that kind of book.
