Inheritance: A Memoir of Genealogy, Paternity, and Love by Dani Shapiro

Image result for inheritance dani shapiroMany people in the last few years have inadvertently opened a “pandora’s box” by taking a DNA test. Some take it for curiosity, some take it because they were given it as a gift, and why not?  Then to find out that biologically they are not who they think they are can be quite a shock. This author has to come to terms that what she pictured as her “family unit” is an altogether different picture. Her journey of discovery as to the how, the why, and what to do now; is one of emotion, and trepidation.  Privacy issues, religious questions and ethical mysteries are rampant.  This memoir is a fair, honest recollection of the process this author took to make sense of her personal nature vs nurture situation and subsequent identity crisis.
