MEMORY KEEPER'S DAUGHTER

KIM EDWARDS    Book Number: 84925    Product format: Paperback

In 1964, a blizzard forces Dr David Henry to deliver his own twins. His firstborn, his son, is perfectly healthy, but the doctor immediately recognises that his daughter has Downs Syndrome. For motives he tells himself are good, he makes a split-second decision that will haunt all their lives forever. He asks his nurse Caroline to take the baby away to an institution. Instead she disappears into another city to raise the child as her own. Kim Edwards has created a tale of regret and redemption, crafted with language so lovely you have to re-read passages over and again. It is a story of parallel lives, familial secrets, and the redemptive power of love in a heart-healing novel. Penguin paperback with Reader's Guide at the back. 401pp. Remainder mark.
