About the Author:

Patricia Jones was a native of Baltimore but lived inNew York City with her daughter. Throughout her writing life, her work appeared in Ms., Essence, Family Circle, Woman's Day, and the New York Times. The Color of Family is her third novel.

From Booklist:

In the 1950s Antonia's twin brother, Emeril, was killed in New Orleans. Before his death he was involved with a white woman, Agnes, who, almost nine months to the day Emeril died, gives birth to a son, Clayton Cannon, and raises him as white. Antonia, raising her own children in Baltimore, has always believed that Clayton is the son of her deceased brother. Her son, Aaron, is a successful television anchorman, and her daughter, Ellen, is a highly regarded gynecologist. Both have ill feelings toward Clayton and the emotional investment of their mother toward keeping up with his life. When Clayton relocates to Baltimore with his family and mother, Antonia becomes even more determined to force the truth about his parentage out of Agnes. Aaron and Ellen finally confront their mother with revelations and painful realities about their childhood that are difficult for Antonia to accept. Yet, when Antonia finally gets the answer to her question, she can finally be at peace knowing that color has nothing to do with family; and the reader is given a provocative, compelling story.
