Life in a Box is a character driven debut literary novel asking the question, how much would you sacrifice to hide a secret? The answer reveals itself after the protagonist, Andee Camp, inherits a box of family history after tragedy strikes along with a challenge to write a novel based on her ancestors. The pieces in a complicated puzzle begin to fit together explaining her relationship with her parents and theirs with each other. It begins with a contemporary timeline, switching to the early 1920's through the 1940's as Andee writes the stories of two sets of twins born on the same day, one set in Portland, Oregon, the other in Amarillo, Texas. By the last chapter we realize the depth of sacrifice as the core of long-held certainties is upended.
