Main Character

Murielle Lyman or Cathy Ferris could be the "main character". This book changes perspective between the two each chapter and they're the same person just at different times. Murielle has parents that left her at a young age illegally. She was very close to them but she doesn't think she can safely get in touch with them.

Important Quote

But I will have two riches: forgiveness and family. -Murielle Lyman p.200

Character Pillar: Resiliency

Murielle "loses" her parents at a young age and never gives up on finding them and keeps on trying.
