堅毅的離婚專業律師Paula有個如冒險般、卻也充滿創傷的童年。

大部份的時光,她與媽媽Kai過著波西米亞式的生活,到處流浪。她向女兒訴說印度神話與美國南方的故事,到處投靠願意收留她們母女的人。她們過著不穩定的生活,母女間卻有深刻的連結。直到那一天,住在毒品交易商家裡的Paula打電話報警,媽媽被送進監獄,而Paula被送往寄養機構……

Paula在成長過程中飽受霸凌,卻仍咬牙努力成為出色的律師。她每個月持續匯錢給媽媽,試圖彌補童年時的背叛,但過去卻仍像陰影般揮之不去,直到她收到媽媽的一封信,告知她即將遠行……

她決定踏上尋母之旅,卻意外挖掘出關於自我與人生的驚人事實!她必須正視內心的陰暗處,但她有辦法面對自己的過去嗎?她有辦法原諒自己嗎?她能解開母女之間多年來的心結嗎?

Joshilyn Jackson為《紐約時報》暢銷作家,以女性小說著稱,深受全球書迷喜愛,作品已以十二國語言出版,並屢獲文學獎肯定。

A fiercely independent divorce lawyer learns the power of family and connection when she receives a cryptic message from her estranged mother in this bittersweet, witty novel from the nationally bestselling author of Someone Else’s Love Story and gods in Alabama—an emotionally resonant tale about the endurance of love and the power of stories to shape and transform our lives.

Born in Alabama, Paula Vauss spent the first decade of her life on the road with her free-spirited young mother, Kai, an itinerant storyteller who blended Hindu mythology with southern oral tradition to re-invent their history as they roved. But everything, including Paula’s birth name Kali Jai, changed when she told a story of her own—one that landed Kai in prison and Paula in foster care. Separated, each holding secrets of her own, the intense bond they once shared was fractured.

These days, Paula has reincarnated herself as a tough-as-nails divorce attorney with a successful practice in Atlanta. While she hasn’t seen Kai in fifteen years, she’s still making payments on that Karmic debt—until the day her last check is returned in the mail, along with a mysterious note: “I am going on a journey, Kali. I am going back to my beginning; death is not the end. You will be the end. We will meet again, and there will be new stories. You know how Karma works.”

Then Kai’s most treasured secret literally lands on Paula’s doorstep, throwing her life into chaos and transforming her from only child to older sister. Desperate to find her mother before it’s too late, Paula sets off on a journey of discovery that will take her back to the past and into the deepest recesses of her heart. With the help of her ex-lover Birdwine, an intrepid and emotionally volatile private eye who still carries a torch for her, this brilliant woman, an expert at wrecking families, now has to figure out how to put one back together—her own.

The Opposite of Everyone is a story about story itself, how the tales we tell connect us, break us, and define us, and how the endings and beginnings we choose can destroy us . . . and make us whole. Laced with sharp humor and poignant insight, it is beloved New York Times bestselling author Joshilyn Jackson at her very best.
