Description - The Memory Keeper's Daughter by Kim Edwards

Families have secrets they hide even from themselves . . . 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 live 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.

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.
