Inhaltsangabe zu „Family Tree The Novel: family tree“ von Miss Andrea N Carr

She went to jail and found freedom. Arrested for driving on a suspended license, Angel Harper was less than prepared to deal with what happened next. Being stuck in jail is the least of her worries when she learns of the emergency her family faces outside, beyond the walls of her jail. Her sister Lady, after struggling with a long history of drug and alcohol abuse, committed suicide. When Angel finds out her young son found his aunt, her mothering instincts kick into high gear – she needs to get out. Miraculously she’s granted a stay of sentencing. In the course of just four days Angel must find a way to grieve and make sense of the mess her sister has left behind, setting the stage for a dramatic snowball of events. From page one Family Tree drops the reader into Angel’s emotional roller coaster of liberation. Not only is she dealing with the death of her sister but faces a lifetime of trials that lead to that very tragedy.

    Angel has been convicted and sent to prison. While she is there, she is informed of a family tragedy: her sister Lady has hanged herself. She is released for the funeral and when she meets her family again, memories of her childhood, when Lady was her dearest companion arise. Why didn’t anybody prevent this from happening? And are there underneath it all recurring structures in this family. Back in jail again, Angel finally can make peace with herself and her family. For me, the novel lacked focus. There are so many things in it; unfortunately, none of them is really elaborated. The drug use or rather abuse is one side note. The complicated family structure is only halfheartedly analyzed. Angels work life and her career as a writer are repeatedly mentioned but you never fully understand it all. And what she does for her follow prisoners is also just jotted down in a few sentences. The main character is poorly developed, she undergoes some change but it is not really believable because we simple do not get to know enough of her.
