Months after the passing of her adopted father, author Diane Dewey was contacted by none other than her biological father in Switzerland. Finally coming in contact with her father unravels mysteries, secrets, and lies surrounding Diane’s birth and her mother. “Fixing the Fates: An Adoptee’s Story of Truth and Lies” (She Writes Press, June 4, 2019) is a fascinating account of one woman’s emotionally vulnerable 14-year-long journey to redefine the meaning of family in her life that had been missing for so long.
Diane’s memoir is a must-read for anyone who has ever struggled with their identity. She encourages her readers to not depend on the approval of others to feel secure, as this will only create an imbalance and distance one from their own values. By incorporating the larger, universal themes of empathy, context, self-acceptance, intuition, and grace, Diane prepares her readers to face the existential questions of today.
