The Memory Keeper's Daughter by Kim Edwards
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I really can't remember the last time I actually cried in a book, but this one that I read just last week did that. It is about a doctor who in delivering his first child realizes it is twins and the girl has downs syndrome. He then asks the nurse helping him to take the baby to an institution and not tell his wife. It takes place in 1964 so definitely a time when they treated cases like this in such a way. Definitely heart wrenching as he is tortured by the decision his entire life and how one action can completely change the course of so many peoples lives. I definitely recommend this book..
