As a child, Susan Silverman was surrounded by a loving family; although her parents weren't happily married, they were devoted to their kids. In a vibrant, funny, imminently relatable voice (think Anne Lamott meets Katrina Kenison), Silverman tells of a family's evolution—from her parents' devastating loss of their infant son to raising bright and wildly unique daughters. It's also the creation story of her own family—raising her own bright and wildly unique daughters and taking a journey to adopt two boys from Ethiopia. A meditation on identity, faith, and belonging, peppered with laugh-out-loud moments, Casting Lots will resonate with anyone who has struggled to find their place in the world, to understand the significance of that place, and to sustain a family amid the world's chaos.
