Publisher's Summary

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.

Great Book😄😄

I've been having a hard time finding a good lately. Hopefully this has ended by bad luck. Great story. Very heart warming and fast paced. I never got bored with the story.

good book, good story, good performance.

the story is engaging. in listened to this book in a single day because I wanted to know what was going to happen next. I wish the ending would have offered a final wrap up to one of the main plots but it didn't . I don't want to give the ending away or lack of ending I should say. this is the first book I have read from this author and I will likely try her again.
