    A Trip Down the Family Tree and Hidden Secrets Unc

    This is book seven of the Casey Cort series and concentrates more on her family history, as her father is suddenly contacted by his birth mother. His has a strange background, from being separated from his mother and older sister Anna when he was only about five, when the Germans overran their town. Casey’s father Peter Cort has done everything right in his life so far, he worked hard until his retirement, has a wife that is the love of his life and also volunteers for his church. The phone call stating his mother is looking for him, which came on Good Friday, has been a shock to him and takes him months to actually follow up on. Most of his past has been hidden and it is not something Casey has ever been told about. It has haunted his memories all his life and how much of what he can remember is the truth is difficult to ascertain. Casey and her best friend Lulu, are both in new relationships, which are at a serious stage, with marriage being discussed. Casey is now engaged, but to a man who is solid, good on paper, but is there that true spark all the mags tell you there should be? She knows there isn’t, but is happy at this time of her life to take what is on offer, whether she should or not. She thinks time is running out on her chance true love. Lulu has almost the opposite relationship. Her boyfriend Sinclair is still married and was her professor at college. They are in a relationship, but he hasn’t asked his wife for a divorce as yet and is somewhat controlling, He works now as a partner of the same law firm where Lulu is working hard to make partner. He has gotten her to change the way she dresses, checks up on her multiple times and day and doesn’t seem to trust her out alone! Lulu agrees to accompany Casey and her father Peter, as they travel to Germany and then Poland to find his birth mother and discover the secrets of his childhood. The Germans kept very detailed records of everything they did during WWII, but the secrets of his adoption have been mostly destroyed to hide this endeavour by the German high ranks. Casey has gotten Lulu to agree to a man free time away, but Lulu is soon breaking this, after repeat texts and missed calls from Sinclair. They both have a lot to think about regarding their relationships and where they are heading. Finding out lots of details about Peter Cort’s childhood and what was done to him, without his family’s agreement, was harsh and also very shocking. How her father deals with this and the shock to Casey as each detail is revealed, leaves her wondering about her own history and what is really true about even her surname and life so far. So much has been hidden from her and kept a secret all these years. How can she and especially her father come to terms with what has been uncovered and the family he discovers? The only bit of lawyer work that is in this book is Casey being asked to take on the divorce case of her best friend’s boyfriend, the man who did such a rotten job of defending her when she was in college and had been so badly treated! An interesting book, showing what was done to many children during WWII, and also how important family truly are. Quite a short book, but lots of details of her family history and relationships decisions. I received an ARC copy of this book from BookSprout and I have freely given my own opinion of the book above. I look forward to reading more of this series.

    short but brilliant

    This story is packed full of intrigue, mystery, drama and suspense as the author keeps the reader on their toes taking us through the plot with strong charismatic characters. It’s only a short read but it’s brilliant one, grab a copy and enjoy. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
