Description
“FAMILY TREE is warm, rich, textured, and impossible to put down.”
–Nora Roberts

Dana Clarke has always longed for the stability of home and family–her own childhood was not an easy one. Now she has married a man she adores and is about to give birth to their first child. But though her daughter is born beautiful and healthy, no one can help noticing the African American traits in her appearance. Dana’s husband, to her great shock and dismay, begins to worry that people will think Dana has had an affair.

The only way to repair the damage done is for Dana to track down the father she never knew. Dana’s determination to discover the truth becomes a poignant journey back through her past that unearths secrets rooted in prejudice and fear.

Barbara Delinsky’s FAMILY TREE is an utterly unforgettable novel that asks penetrating questions about race, family, and the choices people make in times of crisis–choices having profound consequences that can last for generations.

For as long as she can remember, Dana Clarke has longed for the stability of home and family. Now she has married a man she adores, whose heritage can be traced back to the Mayflower, and she is about to give birth to their first child. But what should be the happiest day of her life becomes the day her world falls apart. Her daughter is born beautiful and healthy, and in addition, unmistakably African-American in appearance. Dana's determination to discover the truth about her baby's heritage becomes a shocking, poignant journey. A superbly crafted novel, Family Tree asks penetrating questions about family and the choices people make in times of crisis.
