Book Review: The Memory Keeper’s Daughter

I don’t have time right now to do a nice review, though book reviews are my intention as this blog grows and flowers…But I do love reading novels, and thought I would start with The Memory Keepker’s Daughter by Kim Edwards.  Its about a doctor who delivers his own twins, a boy and a girl, during a housebound snowstorm.  When he sees that the girl has Down’s syndrome, he asks his nurse to take the baby away to an institution (his own defining moment)….unbeknownst to his wife. Instead, the nurse disappears to an unknown city and raises the child as her own.  I found it to be psychologically gripping and so  memorable that when the book ended I kept wanting to find out how the characters were doing for days afterward!
