Set in the Sixties and Seventies, To Find A Home tells the story of Becca Lucas who, at age eleven, finds out she’s adopted. With this discovery, Becca is angry and now longs to find her birth parents, but receives no help from home.
As she matures into a young adult, her primary focus remains finding the ones who gave her up for adoption. She is convinced that understanding the reason for their decision will help her know her true identity and bring her home again.
How this obsession influences Becca’s life choices and how it affects the ones who love her is the basis of the story in To Find A Home. Dot Hatfield’s second novel tells a story of a young girl’s longing to know her roots, and the discovery, layer by layer, of the truth.
