The Memory Keeper's Daughter by Kim Edwards

Published in 2005. 401 pages.

My friend Cynthia recommended this novel to me about a year and a half ago. I finally got to it (as part of my Spring Reading Thing list), and I'm very glad I did.

A heart-wrenching story, it is still a hopeful one. Relationships, secrets, choices, the power of love, and the politics of disabilities all play a role in this first novel by Kim Edwards.

The novel's website is here.
