Default Memory Keeper's Daughter

Hi everyone. I’m sure you are all familiar with Kim Edward’s book the Memory Keeper’s Daughter. But for those of you who are not its an exceptional book in which a father delivers his twins, one of whom is born with Down Syndrome. He makes the decision to hide her birth from his wife, a lie which has tragic results for his family. It was a wonderful book and I wanted to share with everyone that there is a movie version that will be on TV this Sunday at 9 on Lifetime. It looks beautiful and I think it will do the book justice.

That's one of the books in my "need to read" stack. Thanks for your review - I may have to bump it up closer to the top of the heap!
