Author Georgina Lawton gives a powerful narration of her stirring memoir about family secrets, the insidious racism inherent in colorblindness, and the power of self-determination. Lawton grew up in suburban England with white parents who offered no explanation for her Blackness. It wasn't until her father died and she decided to get a DNA test that she finally learned the truth about her parentage. Lawton's smooth lilt is a pleasure to listen to. Her narration is measured and relaxed, though her story is dizzying. Her steady voice has a grounding effect, especially when she's writing about trauma and loss. This exploration of how identities are shaped and how bewildering it can be to reclaim one that's been stolen is a moving and insightful listen.
