Alison Pick was born in the 1970s and raised in a supportive, loving family in Kitchener, Ontario. As far as Pick knew, both her parents were Christian. Then as a teenager, Alison made a discovery that instantly changed her understanding of her family. She learned that her Pick grandparents, who had escaped from the Czech Republic during WWII, were Jewish – and that most of this side of the family had died in concentration camps. In her early thirties, struggling with a crippling depression, Alison slowly but doggedly began to research and uncover her Jewish heritage. Eventually she came to realize that her true path forward was to reclaim her history and indentity as a Jew. In this by times raw, by times sublime memoir, Alison recounts her struggle with the meaning of her faith, her journey to convert to Judaism, her battle with depression, and her path towards facing and accepting the past and embracing the future.
