I don’t normally pick up books like this but the blurb is very intriguing.

Thank you for your kind words, Rosa. I hope you enjoy Myra’s story.
What a pleasant surprise to wake up this morning and see my book on your blog, Melanie. Thank you.
I think this sounds like a very emotional book. We know a boy that was adopted as a newborn. He knows that his birth parents are friends of his adoptive parents. However, no one will tell him which ones are his biological parents. He desperately wants to know and, personally, I think that they should answer his questions. He is an adult now, early 20s. To keep it from him at this point is just cruelty, in my opinion.
I’ll have to add this one to my list to read. Thank you!
