What’s This Book About Anyway?

We start the story with Dr David Henry delivering his own twins in the 1960’s. He delivers one healthy boy and a girl with Downs Syndrome. He quickly decides to tell his wife that the daughter died to save her from the heartbreak of institutionalizing her own daughter. He gives the baby girl to a nurse and asks that she take the baby to the institution.

The nurse doesn’t take her though, she decides to keep her. And so our story starts, with twins on two different paths of life. .
