Shapiro delivers her story in a detached voice that belies the toll this life-altering news took on her heart, mind, and soul, making its impact more powerful and universal.
Unsettling … a meditation on what it means to live in a time when secrecy, anonymity, and mystery are vanishing. [Inheritance] encapsulates an ethical quandary with which our society has yet to fully grapple.
As compulsively readable as a mystery novel, while exploring the deeper mysteries of identity and family and truth itself… a story told with great insight and honesty and heart.
Shapiro’s account is beautifully written and deeply moving — it brought me to tears more than once.
