A happily married couple is about to experieince the birth of their first child. However when their daughter is born her skin is darker than anticipated. He can trace his roots back to the town's founding fathers and she has an unkonwn family history with a few skeletons in the closet. Where did this child's skin colour come from? Unkonwn ancestry? An affair with a neighbour? Definitely a good story and it was good enough to stand on its own without the sidetrips into being politically correct.
