This was an interesting book. It took me a while to get into the book. The gist of the story is... in the 1960's a doctor delivers his wife's twins, a healthy boy and a girl with down syndrome. He has the nurse take the girl to an institution and tells his wife that the baby died at birth. The nurse takes the girl but is unable to leave her, so takes here and raises her as her own child. So the book is about both families as the children grow up.
The last half of the book was much better than the beginning, but I did have a hard time getting into the book.
