are you from?" How could Milly ever know how such an innocent sounding
question would change her life forever. And how Pablo could help
her unlock the secrets of her past. For years, Milly kept the information
about her adoption secret from every one but her best friend. She
didn't feel comfortable having everyone in this small Vermont town know
about her past. How her parents had found her in an orphanage in
Central America while they were in the Peace Corps. Milly didn't
want the other kids to think she was different. But now Pablo has
arrived and he is from the same country. There is a war going on
and Pablo's family have come to Vermont to escape the violence. But
when Pablo looked at Milly, he seemed to know about her past. As
she comes to terms with her adoption, she also finds that her feelings
for Pablo are growing. When his country is freed and the family decides
to return to their home, Milly comes to some drastic decisions about her
future as well as her past.
