Cankered Roots by GG Vandagriff is an emotional tale of love, loss and finding out who you are. Alex, a genealogist, takes a break from helping others learn about their family trees and concentrates on her own. Desperately wanting to have a family after her husband's death, she sets out to uncover the grandfather she barely knew and whom her parents are determined to forget ever existed. What she begins to uncover reminds Alex that sometimes it is better to leave things buried in the past. Originally written in 1993, this new edition of Cankered Roots was a pleasure to read. Taking a step back from modern technology, Alex and her friends have to uncover her family history by traditional means - searching libraries, microfilms, court documents, etc. It was so nice to read a story that isn't built around technology and how easy it is to find information online. Throw in nice doses of mystery, blackmail, unknown identities...even a dash of romance...and Cankered Roots is a great book to get lost in. I am eagerly looking forward to reading more adventures from Alex and her friends.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
