These Ghosts are Family

These Ghosts are Family by Maisy Card--This debut novel looks at a Jamaican family over the generations.  Stanford Solomon is ailing and has specifically requested an aide who he knows is his firstborn daughter--she though is ignorant of this major information. Her family grew up without a father and his decision to end his secret life upends so much of what she believed. It's a very compelling, well-written book that integrates family lore and history from the colonial plantations to present-day Harlem.
