Wonderful book, very touching. Made me consider adopting a child with Downs Syndrome.
This book was very touching, not what you would expect. As always the book outshone the movie. I definitely recommend this book.
Loved this book. It is a bit hard to get through the first 50 pages....but once you do, it is a wonderful story!!!!
Loved this book. It is heartfelt and touching!
I read the book, but I have not seen the movie. This is a wonderful story and I could not put it down. You smile and cry at the same time.
this was tthe best book in the entire world. i LOVE it!!! i even did i project on it in school!
I loved this book. I believe I cried at certain spots.
This book is worth reading. At times it may be frustrating, but it opens your eyes to many things.
I loved this book, I had to share it with friends! It was such an interesting read, and I really liked how it spanned years, you could really see how the choices made in the beginning of the book effected everyone throughout their lives!
I really loved this book and the movie on Lifetime was just as good. It was a quick read that I just could not put down.
The feeling I got from this storyline stuck with me for years. And I still reread it several times! I love a book that moves your soul in an almost painful way, the characters become a part of the fabric of your life.
LOVED this book!!!!! Haven't seen the movie yet, but I definately plan too!
I thought this was a very good book that was not done any justice at all by the movie made of it. If that's all you know of the story, don't give up on the book. It truly speaks to the human ability to compartmentalize the horrible things we do to protect ourselves, or those we love. It doesn't sugar coat. Some mistakes cannot be fixed, some things you can't take back. I understand why the doctor sent away his daughter on the night of her birth, but it was his undoing and rightly so, sad as that was. Still, his daughter was given the gift of a wonderful life. A wonderful read for a long winter night.
loved the book! great story, starts off a bit slow, but worth the wait to get to the good part.
