Summary
Karin Bojs grew up in a small, broken family. At her mother's funeral she felt this more keenly than ever. As a science journalist, she was eager to learn more about herself, her family and the interconnectedness of society using DNA research. After all, we're all related. And in a sense, we are all family. - p. 2 of cover
