Forty years later I'm finding out she wasn't.
This really reads like a mystery story. I started and didn't stop. Sometimes life writes the best stories.
Oh, I love the enigma of this.
What a great fiction it would make!
A secret family, half siblings? Anything could be true.
This proves it: real life truly is crazier than fiction!
I agree with Sue. This reads like a mystery and I couldn't put it down though I should be starting my busy day. Thank you for a great morning read to kick off what I hope will be a productive day.
I really enjoyed this, Ramona. Fascinating mystery. (BTW, I also go down those Google search holes all the time.)
Oh this is so fascinating! I almost want you to write it into a book 😀
This is fantastic.
This definitely tickles the curious! Now I'm dying to know, but I suppose I'll have to accept they mystery. ☺️
Another great story.
Wow...a mystery indeed! While I am sorry you were lied to, I hope this incident fuels even more of your writing.
Back in my youth, I was lied to by 2 different women about who they were and their families. I lost a great deal due to their lies, and I've not forgotten them.
Sometimes, people suck. It's up to us as writers to make something useful from that suckiness.
I love when the 'fact is stranger than fiction' thing is actually true. I enjoyed reading this and I'm gonna choose to think that there was no malice or pain and that she was just playing!
This feels like one of those Netflix documentaries that just keeps unfolding with crazier and crazier twists every episode! Loved this, and I'm so curious to know the answers! 🌿
I can't tell you how much my mystery-solving, google-sleuthing little heart wants to run down a few roads on your behalf. Ha! Delightfully intriguing story. Did you ever finish that novel?
Your story certainly leaves me with a lot of questions.
I guess my questions - for starters - would be -
1. was she trying to create the life she wanted rather than the life she had?
2. was there a mental health issue involved like a split personality or dissociative identity disorder?
3. did she think she wasn't good enough to be who she was?
4. What was she hiding and why?
