Karen White assumes the persona of Dana Clark as the new mother is confronted with questions about her ancestry after the birth of her baby daughter--who has skin much darker than that of anyone else in the family. Dana's birth father is a mystery she's never tried to solve. Her husband's family tree leads back to the MAYFLOWER, and her father-in-law has written a soon-to-be-released book about the Clark family's illustrious heritage. He feels threatened by the possibility of the public learning that he has a mixed-race grandchild. White's vocal manipulation vividly portrays Dana's anger when her husband demands a DNA test to prove paternity. White's polished performance captures the rising family tensions with a skillful delivery that leads to a satisfying conclusion. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 07]
