Publisher's Summary

Light-skinned Selina Standish lives a life of emotional pain and torment. In 1906, at the age of eight, she is convinced by her mother, actress Lavinia Standish, the daughter of a slave, to pass as white. Although Selina yields to her mother's insistence to pass, she refuses to cut ties completely with her Negro relatives, including her twin brother, a child her mother deems too dark.

However, at age 17, in the year 1915, Selina meets wealthy Southerner Jack Cosgrove, the man of her dreams. Keeping her ancestry a secret, Selina is conflicted by Jack's negative attitude toward her race. She must determine if happiness with him could ever be a possibility, especially if she were to reveal her bloodline.

Later, a chance encounter with Pastor Tony Manning opens Selina's eyes to real love. Although he is a progressive thinker regarding race relations, Tony appears to draw the line at interracial marriage. In order to live as his wife, Selina decides, she must completely disassociate herself from all her "colored" relatives. While bound to a chain of secrecy, Selina struggles to live in honesty. How true can she be to her husband if she can never reveal the truth about herself?

A wasted life without a Loving family!

I disliked Salina ( and Lavenia) for shutting off her California family without visiting investigating or inquiring from her father about what her mother was saying knowing her mother was a big outrageous liar.
And that Salina allowed All her family to die out stating constantly how she loved them but not enough to communicate with them.

Excellent story!

This story was excellent including the narration—I have listened to several books read by Madison Vaughn and she never fails to pull me in. The author also did an excellent job of writing across all three books. Her best accomplishment was giving readers a sense of the changing social perspective through the years, as well the subtle changes describing the turn of the century. Although the topic of this series is a hard and complicated one, I was thoroughly entertained and emotionally connected to all three stories.

Pass or fail

Liked it but loved hated the reality of it.
knowing the struggle of being Black, is it right or wrong to Pass. I'm glad the truth was revealed in the end.

"A Suppressed Heritage"

A good story that could fit the narrative for many of our country's citizens...if only they could talk about it.

ALL THAT I CAN SAY IS WOW..WOW WOW

I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS BOOK SERIES. Talk about redemption, peace and forgiveness. Even the evil Lavinia found peace before she died. I am soooo glad Salena told the truth before she died. PLEASE READ THIS SERIES YOU WILL EXPERIENCE ALOT OF EMOTIONS BUT I MUST SAY IT IS SOOOOO WORTH IT IN THE END. Damn I can’t stop crying!
