In her memoir and historical mystery Unto the Daughters, author & former journalist Karen Tintori unveils a family secret set in turn-of-the-century Detroit. The inciting incident to break the silence was an obliterated passport, and then a wedding photo.
“I am Italian, ” she said. “My mother’s side of the family was from southern Sicily. You don’t tell family secrets.”
