"Jan English Leary’s deeply moving Thicker Than Blood tells the story of a family, a new kind of family, one created when a single, white, working woman adopts a black infant. How individuals seek and avoid love, how they misunderstand and hurt one another are at the heart of all intimate relationships. How this bind is magnified and complicated by the pressure of race is what this fine novel reveals. Written with uncommon grace and profound insight, Thicker Than Blood is a brave and poignant novel." Lynn Sloan, author of Principles of Navigation
