One half of my family I hardly know anything about, while the other half I only have a vauge understanding of. Despite this lack of awareness of my familial history, I can still sense the effects of other's choices, as if they are some type of distant influence impinging upon the periphery of my present existence.

One particular story that sticks in my mind is that of my great-grandmother. From what I understand, she was of mixed race and experienced a lot of prejudice. This may have lead to her death. My grandfather blamed his father for the situation and left the country all together. I feel some kind of deep affinity towards my great-grandmother, but cannot explain why.

The book sounds as if it captures this kind of feeling well.

Yeah, it's a great book. Impossible to boil down to any one thing, but there is a sense throughout the story that we are products of our world and past which is not always apparent to us.
