ABOUT MARY MEET GRACE
A young woman gets a phone call from a stranger saying that the birth mother she never knew has died. She accompanies him into the desert to spread her mother’s ashes. Along the way she discovers dangerous truths from which she fights to untangle herself.
Inspired by Faryl’s own experience reuniting with her birth mother, the seed of this story lies in the intense yearning of an adoptee to know more about their past.
