It should have been an ordinary birth, the start of an ordinary happy family. But the night Dr David Henry delivers his wife's twins is a night that will haunt five lives forever. For though David's son is a healthy boy, his daughter has Down's syndrome. And, in a shocking act of betrayal whose consequences only time will reveal, he tells his wife their daughter died while secretly entrusting her care to a nurse. As grief quietly tears apart David's family, so a little girl must make her own way in the world as best she can.

The Memory Keeper's Daughter is an unremarkable read. It's not terrible, but it's not especially good either. Although readable, I was somewhat disappointed by the content of this story and wasn't prepared for the lack of any significant events. It’s a bit too long and drawn out, with not enough drama for me, and as you got near to the end the story just fizzled out.
