In 1968, a disillusioned Lillian Carlson left Atlanta after the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. She found meaning in the hearts of orphaned children in Rwanda and cobbled together her own small orphanage in the Rift Valley. Three decades later, in New York City, Rachel Shepherd, lost and heartbroken herself, embarks on a journey to find the father who abandoned her, a now-famous photographer. When an online search turns up a clue to his whereabouts, Rachel travels to Rwanda to connect with an unsuspecting and uncooperative Lillian. As Rachel tries to unravel the mystery of her father's disappearance, she finds an unexpected ally in a young Tutsi woman who lived through a profound experience alongside her father. Set amongst the gaping wounds of a healing country, follow the intertwining stories of three women who discover something unexpected: grace when there can be no forgiveness.

Jennifer Haupt has been a journalist for more than 25 years. Her essays and articles have been published in O, The Oprah Magazine, The Rumpus, Psychology Today, Travel & Leisure, The Seattle Times, Spirituality & Health, and many other publications. Her well-read Psychology Today blog, One True Thing, is a collection of essays and interviews with bestselling authors. In the Shadow of Ten Thousand Hills is her first novel. She lives in Seattle with her husband, two sons and Duck Toller.

Ms. Haupt will be in conversation with Michelle Halket, publisher of Central Avenue Publishing, headquartered in Vancouver, B.C. She is a bibliophile and technophile who loves to try new things, which is what prompted her to start a digital-first publishing company when very few knew what ebooks were. Fully immersed in words, devices, and paper stock, she now runs a traditional press and when she’s not working, she spends time with her family and dog in the forests of Vancouver.
