Broken Lines

Joe Soll never met his birth parents. Raised by upper-middle class New Yorkers, he spent half of his life tormented by the death of his mother.
But then one day, that story suddenly began to unravel.
“I felt crazed,” he said. “I didn’t know what to do with it.”
What followed was a three decade search for the truth and a mystery that would haunt him for years.
