It’s the story of a man whose wife has twins, one of whom has down syndrome. He decides to give away his special needs daughter to an orphanage, but his nurse is taken with the child and adopts her as her own. As someone who dearly loves a young woman with special needs, I thought this story would be heartwarming and sweet.
It was just boring. Is that awful to say? I’m so surprised that it was a #1 NYTimes Bestseller. The story was far too slow for my liking and I just found myself disappointed. Not a recommended read.
