The Memory Keepers Daughter

Read March 2010 * * * * *

"This stunning novel begins on a winter night in 1964, when a blizzard forces Dr. David Henry to deliver his own twins.
His son, born first, is perfectly healthy, but the doctor immediately recognizes that his daughter has Down syndrome. For motives he tells himself are good, he makes a split-second decision that will haunt all their lives forever. He asks his nurse, Caroline, to take the baby away to an institution. Instead, she disappears into another city to raise the child as her own. Compulsively readable and deeply moving, The Memory Keeper's Daughter is a brilliantly crafted story of parallel lives, familial secrets, and the redemptive power of love."

Brianna's Review: This book was soooo good. You are captured from the first chapter, and even when you aren’t reading it, you are for sure thinking about it. I like how the book is set back in time starting in 1964, and how you can see how things have changed through time. It’s crazy to see how one incident can change soo much in everyones life, and is very realistic. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and hope to read another one of her novels. I highly recommend this book to everyone. 5 stars for sure!
