A really good book! Wasn't quite what I was expecting from the synopsis, but it was a really good read. Be prepared for a few tears along the way, but don't worry it's a love story so you know it's gonna have a happy ending!

Becasue she knows that finding him could resurrect all the half-truths, secrets and unspeakable lies that surroundede his birth.

This book is just a regular paperback. NOT a h/c NOT a large print. Will remove as soon as PBS lets me.

Thanks!
