In the 1980s, a young woman named Jennifer was declared an unfit mother and sent to jail after she was caught stealing food from a supermarket while she left 4-year-old Brooke and 6-month-old Natalie in the car they lived in together.
Now, 35 years later, Natalie is married with two children, and the desire to find her birth mother is ignited when her daughter has to create a family tree for a school assignment. Natalie’s adoptive parents never liked to talk about her life before she was adopted.
Brooke was less fortunate than her sister, and grew up in countless foster homes until she aged out of the system. She never forgot her mother or her little sister and always wondered what happened to them all those years ago.
Fans of Jodi Picoult will love this novel about two sisters torn apart and their journey as they try to reconnect once again.
