About the Book

Dorothy Moy breaks her own heart for a living.

As Washington’s former poet laureate, that’s how she describes channeling her dissociative episodes and mental health struggles into her art. But when her five-year-old daughter exhibits similar behavior and begins remembering things from the lives of their ancestors, Dorothy believes the past has truly come to haunt her. Fearing that her child is predestined to endure the same debilitating depression that has marked her own life, Dorothy seeks radical help.

Through an experimental treatment designed to mitigate inherited trauma, Dorothy intimately connects with past generations of women in her family: Faye Moy, a nurse in China serving with the Flying Tigers; Zoe Moy, a student in England at a famous school with no rules; Lai King Moy, a girl quarantined in San Francisco during a plague epidemic; Greta Moy, a tech executive with a unique dating app; and Afong Moy, the first Chinese woman to set foot in America.

As painful recollections affect her present life, Dorothy discovers that trauma isn’t the only thing she’s inherited. A stranger is searching for her in each time period. A stranger who’s loved her through all of her genetic memories. Dorothy endeavors to break the cycle of pain and abandonment, to finally find peace for her daughter, and gain the love that has long been waiting, knowing she may pay the ultimate price.

Amazing book and amazing gifts

A Beautiful Book and a great way to read!

I absolutely loved the book! And to have the gifts to open along the way added a "thickness" to the experience. The gifts included in this package are lovely, and I found them to make the purchase price worth it.


Ok, so it took a WHILE for me to get into this book. The gifts were great. The book… it took me until about half the book. Having to remember who went where, it felt like personalities instead of past lives.

One thing I love about this subscription is I read books I never would have picked for myself. I don’t ever read the descriptions I just order and hope for the best. When this first came in I was skeptical as to whether I would like it or not but once I started reading it very quickly sucked me in!! The book was wonderful and the gifts were amazing! I think this one came with the best gifts so far (and I’ve done four) and were so well thought out and fit perfectly with the book. It’s also things I will use!! If you’re thinking about trying this one stop debating and do it!!

I love Once Upon a Book Club. Each month offers a book with a collection of gifts that bring the words on the pages to life. My collection is growing and I even had to purchased new book shelves. I love the boxes!

Once Upon a Book Club is a reader’s delight. The concept of this book box is so unique, it combines your love of reading with the joy opening presents.

The gifts truly bring the story to life and perfectly match what’s happening in the story. For example-the main character might have gotten a bracelet from her best friend in the story. And then you get that bracelet as a gift! It’s so fun because it’s an immersive experience.
