I tore through this novel, picking it up at every spare moment, but the issues it brought to mind stuck with me long after I put it down. From the moment a widow decides to care for a stranger's child in 1968 to that child's adulthood and discovery of her past, the diverse cast of characters display the shift in America's attitude toward people with disabilities over a 40-year period. This will make an excellent book club pick!
