When Michael encounters her eccentric mortician father and the other bizarre characters on the plantation of her estranged family, he becomes convinced that Dahlia's past hides the key to her unstable present.

Good story

What did you love best about Chasing Sophea?

I loved having a peek at mental illness and how a family handled or didn't handle it. i loved how the family used a combination of family love and therapy to handle the main characters problem.

AMAZING

If I could give this book a rating from 1 to 10. It would definately be a 10. This is one of the best books that I have read in a long time. It was a little hard to follow at first but it was well worth the wait. It had a very different touch to it. It was based in Dallas County, a familiar area to me. This is a great read. Running from our past and chasing our future.
