The memory keeper’s daughter – Kim Edwards

In 1964 a blizzard forces Dr David Henry to deliver his own twins. His son is born perfectly healthy, but the doctor immediately realizes that his daughter has Downs Syndrome. In a split-second decision he asks his nurse to take his daughter away to an institution. Instead, she disappears into another city to raise the child as her own. What follows is a fascinating and moving portrayal of two families and the devastating secret that shaped them both.
