How can one innocent question shatter everything?

Hello. I’m Evie Prince. A proud forty something bi-racial highly successful woman. I’ve always known where I was going and what I was doing. Until I found myself in a place that I never thought I would be – single, living through a pandemic, and unemployed.

If that wasn’t bad enough, the unthinkable happened. Someone asked – What do I really want to do with my life? What kind of a foolish question is that? I was soon to learn it was the kind of question that would turn my world upside down. Trying to answer that question led me from Colorado to Martha’s Vineyard and uncovered things about my family that would either make or break me. 

Follow my journey to self-discovery and meet the people in my life that helped me remember that everything I needed was contained within.
