A sudden pregnancy forces a young woman to confront the truth about her family’s dark past
Ellie Nightingale moved to New York in the early 1970s, a scared country girl with a newborn, no money, and no one to run to but her sister, a prostitute with a couch to spare. Ellie worked as hard as she could, determined to make a good life for her child, but one day the baby disappeared—kidnapped and handed over to a wealthy Connecticut couple. Skyler Sutton has grown up with riding lessons, fine clothes, and no idea that the people who raised her aren’t her real parents. But when an accidental pregnancy forces her into the same desperate circumstances her own mother was in when she gave birth to her, Skyler is finally brought face-to-face with her past. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Eileen Goudge including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.

I loved this book, and I think it is a must read for everyone. For a longtime I was never able to re-read a book, I would read it the first time, then move on, but this was the first book I was ever able to re-read, and I think that's why it's stuck with me for so long. Read full review
