Review: Any Known Blood

Any Known Blood Any Known Blood by Lawrence Hill
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Langston Cane the fifth is a mid thirties fellow who is divorced and has just been fired from his job as a speech writer for a politician. He comes from mixed race parents, his father being a doctor in Oakville Ontario. Some of his ancestors came from Baltimore and Langston has always been curious about his family history. He has an aunt living in Baltimore who he has never met. He embarks on a project to research and study the history of his family.

After giving up his apartment he buys a Jetta and starts on his journey to Baltimore. He discovers that his aunt never throws out anything and in her boxes she has a world of information and details of such interest to him that he immerses himself completely in the project.

This is the most wonderful book that I have read in a very long time. You find yourself completely absorbed in five generations of Canes. I dare anyone who starts this book to try to put it down for longer than it takes to walk the dog.

A fantastic read.
