A young cage fighter is diagnosed with a strange genetic disorder that requires a bone marrow transplant. It happened so quickly that the matter is now one of life and death; he has twenty-four weeks to live. Martin needs a relative for a donor, but his parents died in a car crash and he has no siblings or other close relatives. A mixed-raced man he casually met at Nandos, who later became a friend, volunteers to go for the test and is found to be a match. Though it is possible that someone from the general public can be a match, Leroy feels there is more to his relationship with Martin than just friendship. He begins his journey to unveil the power of DNA testing in light of today’s medical science, tracing back to two hundred years ago and the slave trade. The result is shocking the whole world, showing that the stranger who crosses your path can possibly be related to you!

“Ancestry and slavery combined with modern day by Sharon Jones-Williams”
I was given this book to read on the promise of an honest review. This a great fast paced book. I did get a bit confused in the very beginning but please don’t give up I started again and started and finished it in one sitting a very moving account of ancestry and slavery worth the 5 stars.
