On a winter night in 1964, Dr. David Henry is forced by a blizzard to deliver his own twins. His son, born first, is perfectly healthy. Yet when his daughter is born, he sees immediately that she has Down's Syndrome. Rationalizing it as a need to protect Norah, his wife, he makes a split-second decision that will alter all of their lives forever. He asks his nurse to take the baby away to an institution and never to reveal the secret. But Caroline, the nurse, cannot leave the infant. Instead, she disappears into another city to raise the child herself. So begins this beautifully told story that unfolds over a quarter of a century in which these two families, ignorant of each other, are yet bound by the fateful decision made that long-ago winter night.… (més)

Loving this book so far. Totally intrigued and can't wait to have moments to read it. Beginning in 1964, a young perfect couple is delivering their first child, which, during a terrible snowstorm, it is revealed that there are twins. The second child, a girl, has Down Syndrome. 1964 and Down Syndrome = automatic institution. The doctor who delivered the twins is actually the father and he makes a decision that night that is shaping this book into a fantastic read. About 170 pages in so far.

Very good book. Very nice writing. I would recommend it. ( )

the tv movie was better because it didn't include all the details and background that really wasn't needed. The movie did a fine job of telling the story. EXCEPT for the ending--quite different in the book. The movie tied it up so quickly and neatly, the ending in the book was much more interesting. ( )

Intriguing story. Well written. Engaging. Can't believe I waited this long to read this book! ( )

There are secrets that shouldn't be kept unsaid. ( )

I was entranced by the author's writing style. I also enjoyed moving back and forth between characters while passing forward through the years. This book was actually a 4.5 for me but I gave it a 5 because I couldn't put it down. It lost that half star because I didn't find the plot diversion of basically adopting a strange pregnant teenager you find in your childhood home believable. ( )

Kim Edwards's debut novel is a winner, and those who read THE MEMORY KEEPER'S DAUGHTER are going to want to read her next one. Highly recommended.

They'd live their lives day by day, each one taking them another step away from their lost daughter.
... when he slid his arms around her again, he was thinking, I love you. I love you so much, and I lied to you. And the distance between them, millimeters only, the space of a breath, opened up and deepened, became a cavern at whose edge he stood.
Their lost daughter still hovered between them; their lives had shaped themselves around her absence.
She did not know that her discarded clothes fluttered in a wind that he himself had set in motion so many years ago.
This was the grief he had carried with him, heavy as a stone in his heart. This was the grief he had tried to spare Norah and Paul, only to create so many others.
