About the Book

As we grow and develop from babies to children, to adolescents, and then to adulthood, most of us rarely think about the roles our immediate family, other family members, and people in our circle play in contributing toward our development as individuals. Therefore, we simply go through life without stopping to relish the good things our family members have given to make us worthwhile human beings.

In The Circle that Binds, author Ellafair Keyes narrates her unique journey through life, sharing her personal family trees and telling how her courageous ancestors paved the way for her to live in the United States. Ellafair is the daughter of a Sharecropper mother and granddaughter of first-generation freed slaves. She offers an autobiographical account of how she overcame negative thoughts and actions by focusing on the life of Jesus Christ and the good things her family instilled in her.

The Circle that Binds serves as a blueprint to help you hold onto family relationships. Ellafair encourages you to use her personal family trees and blank forms to research your ancestral roots and extend and create individual family frees for current and future generations.
