(Copy received for review)
Oh my gosh. This may be the most fascinating and compelling work of nonfiction I have read. Possibly ever.
Combining history and psychology, this work takes us through various areas where families have felt compelled to keep secrets and why. And how it's all changed.
I almost didn't take this one when offered a review copy and I am sooooo glad I decided to read it.
I read it in just a couple of days, which is impressive since usually nonfiction is a much slower process for me than fiction.
I've read some reviews that pointed out the epilogue (about genealogy) and saying that it felt tacked on... like it didn't fit, but I disagree. I think it was the perfect continuation.
Maybe it's just because we Mormons are a little obsessed with genealogy, but I thought it felt very natural to take the book there.
Overall- read it. Period. Now.
