The author delves deep into his family history and secrets kept for fifty years to uncover the truth of his birth. His search for the reasons behind the secrets bring surprise and intrigue, yet his journey highlights the strength of love and family bonds. The differences in society and cultural expectations between the 1960s and the 21st Century are explored, along with the validity of keeping a secret for such a length of time and whether there is ever a good time to tell someone the truth about their birth.
