A New York Times Bestseller

In the spring of 2016, a genealogy website to which she had whimsically submitted her DNA for analysis gave Dani Shapiro the stunning news that her father was not her biological father. Her entire history, the life she had lived, crumbled beneath her. Inheritance is a book about secrets — secrets within families, kept out of shame or self-protectiveness; secrets we keep in the name of love. It is about a woman’s urgent quest to unlock the story of her identity, which was scrupulously hidden from her for over fifty years — years she had spent writing brilliantly, and compulsively, on themes of identity and family history.
