The Family Tree, Paperback Book
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


On the day of Charles and Diana's wedding, Rebecca Monroe's mother locked herself in the bathroom and never came out.

Was it because her squidgy chocolate log collapsed or because Rebecca's grandmother married her first cousin?

Can we never know why we do what we do? 'This clever and moving debut examines three generations of the Monroe family and explores nature versus nurture...thoughtful and immensely entertaining' Observer

Review by

Thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a funny, quirky, innovative book and jumps very successfully from past to present without losing its reader. Reading it feels almost like remembering things from one's past, it feels that real.
