Doris Carter, a woman of strong faith who was born in Barbados in 1951, has published her latest book “The Dark Family Secrets”: an unhappy memoir of corruption and greed.

The author shares, “On August 18, 1951, in Barbados, my mother, Clara Carter, gave birth to me, Doris Carter, and my twin sister, Dorothy. Dorothy, who was head of records of the United States was the family secret. My mother gave Dorothy away when she was born so I never knew her, but she always knew about me. In my early thirties, I moved to Montreal, Canada, where I won the lottery for five hundred thousand dollars. My sister, Dorothy Allen, who was living in New York City at the time found out about my winnings and made her way out to Montreal, Canada. After going through hell and back with my estranged husband to get the ticket from him, I couldn’t even cash in the lotto ticket. I was told that according to their records, I had died on the seventh of April, and they had the death certificate to prove it. Turns out that my twin sister, Dorothy, and my ex–sister-in-law, Angela Smith, along with a lawyer by the name of Albert Gomberg committed a federal crime and filed the certificate, and a doctor from Montreal General Hospital signed off on it. Question, what would you do in my position? When your back is against the wall and you don’t know who you can trust, not even your own lover? Follow me through all the crazy twists, turns, and evil ways family can betray you.”
