Book Review: The Memory Keeper's Daughter

The Memory Keeper's Daughter The Memory Keeper's Daughter by Kim Edwards

My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars
The Memory Keeper's Daughter examines how an impulsive decision kept a secret can shatter a family for decades. Sometimes when we take in action under the guise of protecting those we care about from hurt we fail to acknowledge the potential for unintended consequences of that protection.

Other themes include societal and familial responses to 'less than perfect' people. Individuals with character flaws as well as genetic disorders are examined.

I enjoyed this book and found the story and characters to be compelling.
