Book Review: Memory Keeper's Daughter by Kim Edwards - Reviewed by (15 Jan 2010)

I really enjoyed this book. It is the story of a husband doing what he felt was the right thing for his wife and family at the time, and then later living with the guilt of what he had done for the rest of his life. Always wondering what happened to his baby girl.

This is defiantly a book I will read again.
