Welcome to the Great Mysterious Synopsis

Diva Geneva Jordan has performed for millions on stage, screen and television but her current leading role is in Minnesota. She has agreed to look after her thirteen-year-old nephew, a boy with Down's syndrome, while his parents take a long-overdue vacation. Though Geneva and her sister, Ann, are as different as night and day ('I being night, of course, dark and dramatic'), Geneva remembers she had a family before she had a star on her door.

Then the discovery of an old scrapbook that she and her sister created long ago starts her thinking of things beyond fame. For THE GREAT MYSTERIOUS is a collection of thoughts and feelings dedicated to answering life's BIG questions – far outside the spotlight's glow…
