Months after the passing of her adopted father, Diane Dewey was contacted by none other than her biological father in Switzerland. Finally coming in contact with her father unravels mysteries, secrets, and lies surrounding Diane’s birth and her mother. “Fixing the Fates: An Adoptee’s Story of Truth and Lies” (She Writes Press, June 4, 2019) is a fascinating account of one woman’s emotionally vulnerable 14-year-long journey to redefine the meaning of family in her life that had been missing for so long. “Fixing the Fates” encourages its readers to reassess what it means to have family. Diane views family as a emotional commitment that is absolutely not limited to biological relationships; she hopes to communicate to her audience that family is not simply either “blood” or “adopted”, but that they can both peacefully exist in the same space.
