Hello Tom. Not sure why you're getting that error message.

"Regarding Anna" is about a young woman who loses her parents in a tragic accident, and after going through things she finds in their attic, suspects the people she called Mom and Dad all those years weren't her actual parents. It's the story of her search for the truth and how the lies and secrets she exposes in the process change her life.(less)

“you create your own happiness by the choices you make. If you rely completely on others, you’ll never have it, at least not in the true sense of happiness.”
Florence Osmund, Red Clover

“If you keep letting things happen to you, you’ll always be channeling someone else’s course.”
Florence Osmund, Red Clover

“As my uneasiness heightened, I tried to imagine who lived here, what their days were like, how they ended up here. I thought about children growing up in this kind of environment, the opportunities they probably didn’t even know they were missing. I thought about my own situation, and all of a sudden my troubles didn’t seem so bad.”
Florence Osmund, Regarding Anna
