LATHAM, N.Y., Aug. 22, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Jacqueline McDonald, who nurtured a longtime passion and urge to write even before her incredible discovery of her family history, has completed her new book "A Daughter's Secret": a remarkable true story of a woman uncovering her long-hidden lineage.

Author McDonald writes about the lightbulb moment: "When my husband ran around the house all happy about his results, being funny talking with a Nigerian accent, I was happy for him and sad that he could never get the names of the people that actually lived in Nigeria.

After a few months of hearing Victor talk about his fourth cousin Vivian, I would just nod my head thinking I sure am glad he's communicating with so many others. We had a birthday party down in Brooklyn, New York, for my mother-in-law, and Victor was telling his sisters about the percentage of their bloodlines and his sister Joyce start doing an African dance—might I add that she did so well and I smiled and well . . . That is when the light went on. For some reason, right away I was curious to hear more about my people. Funny how one person's actions can trigger another's so unexpectedly."

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Jacqueline McDonald's new book is a vivid true story for anyone who has always been fascinated with ancestry and the surprising roots of origin. Ultimately it is a coming to terms with the full picture of one's identity.

Readers who wish to experience this engaging work can purchase "A Daughter's Secret" at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
