Read this after reading the OUTSTANDING novel May We Be Forgiven.

The author's story is full of ups and downs and confusing interactions with her birth parents but after a while, I wanted the ride to stop so I could disembark. It's like when you hear an actor/actress being interviewed and it ruins your idea of that person.

I will definitely be reading more AM Homes. May We Be Forgiven still resonates but sometimes, some memoirs take me down a tunnel of gloom that I'd rather save for fiction.

This is a great story. Belonging and longing to belong- thought provoking on many levels.

The book seems overly long for the material communicated. Maybe it should be retitled something like "Salvaged from a Bad Affair", to put the biological parents in a more accurate context. It is probably a better read for people impacted by adoption.
