Abstract

In this memoir, tragedy hits Alena Dao’s family one Easter morning. She changes her last name, moves to California, travels the world, and does all she can to bury the darkness of her past. Her grief, however, seeps into her present when she is assaulted years later on her college campus. Through police report documents, interviews, and family relationships, Alena struggles to solve the crimes that destroyed her family.
