Natashia S. King-Tyes Debuts with 'Bloodlines'
Half of all American children will witness the breakup of their parents' marriage, reports "The Life Course of Children of Divorce," a study published in the American Sociological Review. Beyond the statistics are stories of children who must cope with the pain of losing the family they once knew. One such story is told in Natashia S. King-Tyes' stunning literary debut, "Bloodline: One Drop Rules the World" (published by Xlibris).
This novel is the first book in a series that follows the Denson sisters on a journey to find identity, love, and family in the wake of their parents' separation. The sisters find their resolve and relationship tested as they face abandonment, abuse, and racial prejudice.
"Many people in today's society (might) pretend the issues I raise in this book have disappeared, but they haven't," King Tyes says. "This book will bring awareness to the issues I raise. I offer readers the ultimate solution through one of the characters in my storyline."
Heralding the arrival of a gifted new voice, "Bloodline" is a redemptive tale that examines some of today's most topical matters, including the breakdown of the family and racial discrimination, in light of the experiences of its richly drawn characters. Above all, it is an unforgettable story of the bonds of sisterhood, the grace of forgiveness, and the transformative, healing power of love.
