Descriere

The multi-million copy bestseller, Kim Edwards' "The Memory Keeper's Daughter" is a moving and poignant novel about grief, family and betrayal. 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 lives 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. "Crafted with language so lovely you have to reread the passages just to be captivated all over again ...this is simply a beautiful book". (Jodi Picoult). "I loved this riveting story with its intricate characters and beautiful language". (Sue Monk Kidd, author of the best-selling, "The Secret Life of Bees").
