A Father-Daughter Genealogy Team Link Present to Past on Family Trees
On a solo ski vacation in Canyon Mines, Colorado, Tucker has a love-hate relationship with his wealth, spending indiscriminately while skiing fearlessly and preparing to conquer the overgrown slope of Hidden Run, a dangerous run not attempted in decades. As genealogist Jillian tries to uncover enough of Tucker’s family tree to understand his charming nature but reckless resolve, Jillian’s equally charming father, Nolan, cajoles Tucker into giving him ski lessons to get him talking about the suspicious circumstances surrounding his grandfather’s life in St. Louis in the 1930s.

On the surface, Tucker’s family’s history seems too perfect. The secret may lie in the sealed envelope Tucker carries with him at all times—even on the ski slope. When no one can find Tucker to tell him the fiancee that he never mentioned turned up in Canyon Mines, they realize he must be off attempting to ski Hidden Run alone in a snowstorm. And they may be too late.

In the Cradle Lies is the second book in the Tree of Life series by Olivia Newport. You’ll want to return to the lovely Colorado mountain town of Canyon Mines again and again to explore and celebrate unforgettable family stories that will inspire you to connect with your own family histories and unique faith journeys.

I am enamored with this duo of what they find out. This book is set on the story of Tucker's grandfather. The story is so detailed. You will be pulled into and wanting to know why Tucker comes to ski but he being reckless.

Though the story behind Matthew Rider and his childhood it like pulling teeth from his grandson. The story is deep and you will want to find out why. How Matthew Ryder made the choices he makes. There seem to be secrets and what his father did.

If you are into genealogy and the history of family stories. This book has it. You will be wanting to turn the pages from the first one to the last one. You do not know until the end of the book how all the pieces come together. We also find out who Matthew Ryder is?
