    What a beautiful story! I laughed and cried with these brave women. I would highly recommend this book to others. A great read!

  • Julie Johnston

    What a great insight into the world of forced adoption and the lasting longings of both the mother and child, very poignant. At least these days both parties have a chance of contact in the future.

  • Charlotte Miller

    Received this book as a gift. Interesting theme but characters are numerous and are not developed. This results in the readers interest in the characters not being retained.
