The ups and downs and twirl arounds in The Daughter of Union County make this saga of a very intertwined family a must read.  A wealthy White man with a barren wife is determined to have an heir.  When his tri-racial mistress in 1870 Arkansas gives birth to his White-skinned daughter, the man forces the child into the arms of his reluctant wife, declaring “this is your baby.”  Protecting this secret sends out multiple tentacles of disaster from oil-land grabs, to a vicious rape, to murder to a test of sibling loyalty, to racial passing.
