A very well done account and stories of so many women like me. As a mother who gave up a child at 14 I found the book so relatable.
As an adoptee this book is a must read. I have not yet found my first mother but I feel like I can already sympathize with her story and struggles. I had to read this book in small increments because it is so close to my reality and has created such extreme emotions. There were parts of the book that I just could not get enough of and others that I worked really hard to keep it together after reading it. Thank you so much Ann Fessler for writing such an impactful and relevant piece and know that your work will be imprinted in my heart forever. I hope that one day I am able to find my mother, and when I do I will recommend this book to her.
