Another excellent book by Belva Plain. Since reading this one and After the fire, I now keep my eye out for all of her books and buy them whenever possible. Belva Plain is a really good writer and she really makes the characters come alive on the pages. By the time you are done with the book, you feel you really know the characters in the book as if they were your neighbors.
i have always enjoyed Belva Plain books ever since "Evergreen". Ms Plain writes about family and relationships, choices and results of those choices down thru generations. This book was right in keeping with her other novels.
Belva Plain is an excellent author but I found myself skipping sections because I could not get into it at first. By time I did get into it was about half way through and then it held my attention to the end of the book.
A couple discovers that the son they love, & who is now dying, is not their child. They learn that the babies were mixed at birth. This is the heartrending story of two families joined by this unlikely circumstance - & oh, are these families different!
