Barbara Delinsky's Family Tree is an utterly unforgettable novel that asks penetrating questions about race, family, and the choices people make in times of crisis - choices that have profound consequences that can last for generations.
"Delinsky delves deeper into the human heart and spirit with each new novel." (Cincinnati Enquirer)

What could Barbara Delinsky have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
The story just isn't believable. I'm black from a family that has mixed races generations back but African American within the on both sides for the last four. All four of my children were born with straight hair and skin that appeared Caucasian; black babies darken up over a period of weeks and their hair curls likewise. It's extremely rare for mixed race children to come out with color and curly hair, so from the beginning this story was just ridiculous. I was just so disappointed. Not only in the author, but kept wondering, is this how the average white person really thinks about race? Oh my God.
Would you listen to another book narrated by Karen White?
The narrator was fine -- it was the story.
Any additional comments?
Don't waste your time on this one.

OK but not great
I have really enjoyed some of Barbara Delinsky's books -- Coast Road and Three Wishes are two of my favorites. This book was OK but not as good as some of her others. She takes on a hard topic, racism, but I don't think she gets past the surface with it.
