While sorting through the detritus of his life she finds adoption papers with her birth date; suddenly everything she thought she knew has changed. When confronted; her adoptive mother acts as if she's making a big deal out of nothing. Talking with other relatives provides little elucidation. So McCone decides to do what she does best; investigate. From one of the biggest ranches in California to a ghost town to the Shoshone Reservation McCone chases her origins. The title is established when her longtime lover Hy Ripinsky advises her not to listen to just the words; but to the silences between the words. In doing so McCone to her disappointment; finds a father and not long afterwards she discovers her mother in the hospital; a victim of a hit and run. She discovers more about her origins and a father who she's more pleased with. Along with that she unearths the truth of a forty year old murder; and realizes that her parents are the people who raised her.
