Belief Is Its Own Kind of Truth, Maybe

"BELIEF IS ITS OWN KIND OF TRUTH, MAYBE is the story of one woman's search for her mother, but more than that it's the story of what we all long for, the feeling of belonging to a family and knowing how safe we are there, how protected and loved. Lori Jakiela's memoir is filled with heart-wrenching scenes and moments of transcendence. It doesn't look away from the ugly, but it always finds the light that rises above it. To read this book is to experience our lives and their complicated arrangement of disappointment, sadness, wonder, and joy. I won't soon forget it; neither should you." -- Lee Martin, author of SUCH A LIFE
