“Half Past” by Victoria Helen Stone

“Half Past” by Victoria Helen Stone

What happens if you wake up one day and discover that you are not who you think you are? This is what happens to Hannah Smith and the story “Half Past” follows her on a very unexpected journey. Hannah has recently taken over, from her older sisters, the role of caregiver for their mother who is suffering from dementia. When she questions the results of a simple blood test on her mother’s medical records her world is turned upside down. Hannah discovers that the woman who raised her is not her biological mother. With her father dead and her mother rarely having lucid moments, it’s up to Hannah to discover for herself how she came to be Hannah Smith. Her journey takes her to California where she discovers her twisted history and herself.

This book has all of my favorite things. A main character who is complicated and not always very charming. I setting in the redwoods of California and beautiful descriptions of the location. A mystery that does not have an obvious solution. Hippies and communes, and a personal psychological journey. The result is that I devoured this story. In my book, this is a hit and I highly recommend it.
