Inhaltsangabe

A young mother surrenders her daughters. A loving family quickly adopts one while the other spends her turbulent youth in foster care. What happens when the sisters reunite 35 years later to find the woman who abandoned them? Amy Hatvany fearlessly explores complex family issues in her gripping, provocative new novel.

Natalie Clark knew never to ask her sensitive adoptive mother questions about her past. She doesn't even know her birth mother's name - only that the young woman signed parental rights over to the state when Natalie was a baby. Now Natalie's own daughter must complete a family tree project for school, and Natalie is determined to unearth the truth about her roots.

Brooke Walker doesn't have a family. At least that's what she tells herself after being separated from her mother and her little sister at age four. Having grown up in a state facility and countless foster homes, Brooke survives the only way she knows how - by relying on herself. So when she discovers she's pregnant, Brooke faces a heart-wrenching decision: give up her baby or raise the child completely on her own. Scared and confused, she feels lost until a surprise encounter gives her hope for the future.

How do our early experiences - the subtle and the traumatic - define us as adults? How do we build relationships when we've been deprived of real connection? Critically acclaimed author Amy Hatvany considers controversial and complicated questions about childhood through the lens of her finely crafted characters in this astute novel about mending wounds by diving into the truth of what first tore us apart.

    "Schade"

    Tolle Charaktere und eine interessante Handlung, die Geschichte hört nur leider mittendrin sehr abrupt auf.

    "incredibly sad"

    It's nicely told, heart wrenching at many points, without ever being over dramatic.
    The speaker are well chosen too.

    careful,might be the hint of a spoiler:
    ....
    After all the sadness, I had hoped for a little different ending and more closure in general.
