The Sanderson/Trist Family Tree

Dependent on the number of members a family might have, some family trees have more branches than others, but all have roots that run deep. In an effort to introduce my fellow bloggers to my newest book series—Brides; a family saga told in a trio of books spanning from 1988 through 2007, collectively,  I introduce to you an early family tree. The story begins with Ralph and Bethany Sanderson sitting at the heads of the table, still living in ‘The Big House’, on ‘The Homestead’; the ancestral home passed down for the past 160+ years. Unlike the family it supports, this tree shows shallow roots.


Although, shown here in partial color, the family tree/s as printed in my books. are black & white.
