Two phone calls. One death. 

This is a true story.


On July 4, 2020 Kory received two phone calls. One from her uncle, saying her mother was found dead in her bedroom from an overdose. A second from a homicide detective saying he believes it was murder—and her uncle is the suspect.

USA TODAY bestselling author Kory M. Shrum makes her foray into nonfiction with this deeply vulnerable memoir. This is a true story about her mother's sudden tragic death under suspicious circumstances, and the tumultuous childhood she shared with her mentally-ill mother. 


But above all, it's about her discovery that no matter how deep the wounds, redemption and forgiveness are always possible even after death.
