The Memory Keeper’s Daughter (12) – Edwards, Kim
On a winter night in 1964, Dr. David Henry is forced by a blizzard to deliver his own twins. His son, born first, is perfectly healthy. Yet when his daughter is born, he sees immediately that she has Down’s Syndrome. Rationalizing it as a need to protect Norah, his wife, he makes a split-second decision. He asks his nurse, Caroline, to take the baby away to an institution and never to reveal the secret. But Caroline cannot leave the infant. Instead, she disappears into another city to raise the child herself. REQUEST IT!
