Journal Entry 1 by wingPlum-crazywing from Brighouse, West Yorkshire United Kingdom on Friday, April 20, 2018
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 for ever.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...

A lovely read, both heartwarming & heartbreaking -it bought a lump to my throat on more than one occassion!

I think the quote from Sue Monk Kidd on the back cover sums it up perfectly..."An absolutely mesmerizing premise, drawing you deeply & irrevocably into the entangled lives of two families & the devastating secret that shapes them both. Riveting."
