Publisher's Summary

Behind the Ivy Walls is based on the true story of a young boy seemingly born with the proverbial silver spoon in his mouth. It is written in the time-honored tradition of a feel-bad/feel-good story in which someone else's tragedy teaches us life lessons about positive thinking and seizing each day as a gift. This book details the quest for a true identity, the love of a family, and a safe place to call home.

After years of mental and physical abuse, the boy discovers that he was secretly adopted and begins an unlikely journey to search for his family. In this wonderful Huck Finn type story, one surprising deception after another surfaces, culminating in a secret so powerful it had to be buried for more than 50 years.

Peppered full of twists, life-determining challenges, positive role models, and many surprising skeletons in the closet, it ends with the unraveling of a father's ultimate vengeance and a mother's final retaliation.
