After weeks of prodding by her cousin and best friend Sarah Abbot, Elizabeth Barrett agrees to submit a DNA sample to Ancestry.com. Never in her wildest dreams, could Lizzie have imagined how her life and the lives of those she loves would change with the arrival of the test results. Instead of providing sought after answers, additional questions are raised, long-hidden secrets are revealed, and unexpected relatives are discovered.
Searching for the truth about her grandmother’s hidden past, Lizzie and Sarah travel from Arizona to the Czech Republic where they’re confronted with the horrors of the past, a time when, under Nazi rule and later Soviet oppression, Prague’s Jews were forced to make life-altering decisions that still impact their lives almost eighty years later.
Family Ties will keep you on the edge of your seat as you join Lizzie and Sarah in their efforts to solve the many mysteries of Lizzie’s family history and, at the same time, make important decision about their own futures.
Throughout the book, you will learn about the history and experience the sights of Prague. As well, you’ll be immersed in the ups and downs and the joys and disappointments of an ever-growing family with whom you’ll find an instant connection.
