#FIRST WORDS FRIDAY TANGLED ROOTS By Marica Talley

PEACE

“It started with a phone call. Doesn’t it always?

Although my cell phone was resting face down on the patio table within easy reach, vibrating noisily against the glass, I almost didn’t pick up. My hands were encased in rubber gloves while I smoothed marine varnish over the sun-bleached teak of our deck chairs. I could tell by the ringtone, however, that Georgina was on the line. I knew from experience that she’d keep dialing my number until I silenced the chimes either by switching the phone into airplane mode or chucking it into the rhododendrons. So, I caved.”


PUBLICATION DATE July 1, 2019

PUBLISHER SEVERN HOUSE

NETGALLEY SAYS

“Hannah Ives’s sister, Georgina, has some astonishing news. A DNA test has revealed she is part Native American, and Hannah’s test has similar results. The link seems to come from their late mother. But how? As Hannah dives into constructing her family tree, she uncovers a heart-breaking love story and a mysterious death, while DNA matching turns up two second cousins, Mai and Nicholas. Hannah and her niece, Julie, are eager to embrace their new relatives and learn about their surprising ancestry, but Georgina’s husband, Scott, isn’t so keen. Are there more shocking revelations to come? And can Hannah untangle her family roots to uncover the truth behind a devastating tragedy?”

I am looking forward to reading this book.

    Technology, like DNA tests can bring good and bad with it.
