Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate

Reviewed by Holly (Library Patron)

This book takes you into a world few of us would imagine, the dark side of adoption history in the U.S. Readers are transported to this world through the characters Wingate paints in this carefully crafted book. The plot line is told in parallel time periods which fits perfectly with the premise of the book. Wingate reveals character relationships as the book develops. Some of them are surprising as names changed due to not only the adoption component but also due to the criminal nature of the actions taken by some shady characters. Obviously the book is not a “happy” read, but it does leave you with the power of family ties and perhaps will plant a seed of gratitude for your own family roots.
