Loved this book and its exploration of the quandary of identity. I am particularly drawn to birth stories and how they shape a person, and in this case threaten to un-shape a person. Dani Shapiro is a master of taking a personal revelation and making it something more universal. This is an issue of our current age. The uncovering of previously unknown biological attachments is happening all around us. As I was reading Inheritance I thought of so many people I need to send it to – people who are going through similar things thanks to 23 and me or Ancestry.com.
If you love speculating family secrets, you will love Inheritance!!
