Kindred…by Steve Robinson


Jefferson Tayte, an American genealogist, is on the hunt for this birth parents. His search leads him to Germany where he must untangle his family tree by delving into the horrors of WWII.
I have no idea why everyone doesn’t know what a fantastic author Steve Robinson is. He has an uncanny talent for describing scenes that paint such a detailed picture in my mind that I feel as if I can reach out and touch the characters. I first discovered Robinson’s works when he was a self published author. Now he has become quiet popular. I recently found copies of this books at my local library here in Florida.IMG_0415

I was first intrigued by the description of his first book ‘In the Blood’ as a genealogy mystery.  All the books in the series revolve around genealogist Jefferson Tayte researching someone’s family history.The novels take place in Europe but Tayte is from America. To me this is brilliant because it allows readers on both sides of the pond to identify with the novel.

Kindred is the fifth book in the series. It is fast paced and multilayered . This novel focuses on Tayte researching his own family history (he was adopted under mysterious circumstances as an infant). The story line did remind me a little of Jodi Picoult’s book ‘The Storyteller’ but this novel focuses on Tayte exploring his mysteries family past. 

Kindred was a five star read for me. Robinson always keeps me eagerly anticipating the next Jefferson Tayte novel. I recommend all five of Steve Robinson’s books (‘To The Grave’ being my favorite’).
I was given a copy of this book via netgalley in exchange for a honest review.
