  • Summary

  • What happens when your family tells you one thing, but a DNA test tells you another?

    Georgina Lawton grew up in a loving family but she didn’t look like anyone else. She has dark eyes, curly hair and brown skin. Both her parents were white.

    Georgina took a DNA test. The results changed her life forever.

    With millions around the world using 'do-it-yourself' DNA testing kits, Georgina follows the stories of those learning to live with the results.

    A Loftus Media production for Audible Originals.

Captivating and candid!

I loved this audio book as I drove to and from work. I am from a black African background and have a blended family. Our differences only bind us closer.

Very interesting

I can't say I have thought about this topic before but this makes being honest with your children crystal clear. Very concise and easy to understand. Also being from South London it almost seemed to be told by a friend.

Really enjoyed listening to this. Really hope you find your biological dad but feel so happy for you that you had an amazing dad and role model growing up. Someone who loved you unconditionally.

Brilliant!

I was absolutely hooked. It's really hard to embed vulnerability into your life when you know it's going to hurt others but Georgina has shown that pushing through all of that really does pay off, better relationships not only with the people around her but with herself too. Really moving snd informative.

Everyone should listen to this with this secret

I have always said honesty is the best policy! The truth always finds you! I hope everyone with a similar secret shares the truth as early as possible to avoid mistrust, heartbreak and discord.

The revealing side of DNA

I couldn't stop listening to this wonderfully revealing explanation for the reasons and drive to find out about her genetic origins and unknown father. A well researched and responsible piece of detective work with DNA at it's centre. If your interested in family history and/or knowing about your ethnic identity then this is a must listen.

wonderful!

what a wonderful piece of storytelling. This made me both cry, laugh and reflect. I felt I was there when she meet with her friends . The vulnerability of the mum is so precious. The research is thorough and clear. I learnt a lot and having a mum who has been adopted, it was an eye-opener. Thank you!
