In 2016, Dani Shapiro found through a DNA sample and genealogy website that her biological father was not her real biological father. Inheritance is Dani Shapiro’s journey to find her birth father.
I chose Inheritance due to it being chosen as The Happier Podcast’s book of the month. I love anything associated with Gretchen. My mom is adopted and I had always contemplated finding out what my background was. After reading this book, I purchased a 23 and Me kit and found out my background. I really enjoyed this book. Dani Shapiro is an amazing author and writes a beautiful memoir. I also enjoyed the podcast after to answer listener questions regarding the book. I probably wouldn’t have necessarily chosen this book on my own, but I’m so glad I did. It gave me the push to actually order a DNA kit.
I gave this 4/5 stars on Goodreads. It is an enjoyable read with beautiful writing.
