When Dani Shapiro submits her DNA to a genealogy website on a whim at the age of fifty-four, she receives some shocking results: her father is not her biological father. After some careful Internet sleuthing, Dani discovers that her birth father was, in fact, an anonymous donor. This begins her fascinating journey to uncover the strange and secretive circumstances surrounding her conception.
Fast-paced and beautifully-written, Inheritance is enriched by Dani's sensitive and intelligent insights on family, love, and identity. Recommended for genealogy and memoir fans!
