A stunning novel that begins on a winter's night in 1964, when a blizzard forces Dr. David Henry to deliver his own twins. His son born first is perfectly healthy, but he recognizes immediately that his daughter has Down syndrome. In a hasty split-second decision that will haunt him forever, he tells the nurse assisting him to take the baby away to an institution. But, the nurse instead takes the child and disappears to another city to raise the baby as her own. A deeply moving and brilliantly-crafted story of parallel lives, family secrets, and the redemptive power of love. Simply a beautiful tale of regret and redemption, of characters haunted by their past. Absolutely mesmerizing from cover to cover.
