“Time to visit the kinfolks”

Delana's Aunt Tilley was full of life. Every night Aunt Tilley filled Delana's head with wild, outrageous family stories. These tales were so unconventional that Delana didn’t know if they were fact or fiction. Whenever Aunt Tilley said “Time to visit the kinfolks” Delana knew that with every family photograph came a dramatized fabrication or truth and something new would be added to her aunt’s “book of bewares”.  And then one night Aunt Tilley went to her favorite tree by the river and died.

Tonya Bolden’s Finding Family: a novel is a book full of imagination, family secrets, disappointments and delights.
