37 years later…

From the bestselling author of Me Without You comes another touching, beautifully told story about the pain of separation and the enduring strength of love.
My Review: A very beautiful and sensitive story based on truly heartbreaking true events in Australia in the early 70’s concerning forced adoptions. I loved reading about the main character “Bean’s” emotions and feelings towards her adoptive parents and her birth parents and the wonderful relationship she has with her husband. All the characters felt very real to me and I would recommend this book.
