Family Tree by Barbara Delinsky

This, my first Delinsky book was devoured in three days! For me it was a page turner and thought provoking.

Dana & Hugh who are both white, are looking forward to the birth of their first child. When the baby arrives the complete family are surprised as the baby who is to be called Lizzie is black. This starts a whole host of emotions and questions. The questions are how could this have happened? Had Dana been unfaithful? What was Dana’s background?, as she had never known her father. Hugh struggles to cope between the obvious love for his wife, the questions and his family who would rather believe that Dana was unfaithful than this as a twist of genetics.

Of course, there are the twists and turns to this storyline, some of which are predictable, but nonetheless, this is an enjoyable read.
