Lisa Wingate is a former journalist, an inspirational speaker, and the bestselling author of more than twenty novels. Tann used to scare parents into signing their children over were despicable and once that happened, there was nothing that could be done. I have read quite a few books recently that take place in the south, and all were wonderful and very interesting to this California girl.

If you're ready for a story you can really sink your teeth into with characters that virtually come to life, here you go.

As the story progressed it became increasingly chilling and I was almost picking it up with dread at the prospect of discovering what on earth was going to happen next. Although most of the characters in the book are fictional, this emotional story represents the thousand of kidnapped children, taken by the hands of child trafficker, Georgia Tann, and placed in the Tennessee Children's Home Society to be illegally adopted.Sometime books rated high - are Goodreads Choice Winners - really ‘are’ heartbreaking- beautiful- emotional - important - historical - powerful - eye opening - educational - ( based on real life scandals) - wonderful and compelling. At Mister-Seekers Books, we strive to transform every transaction into a delightful journey of discovery. The characters are all developed extremely well by the author and have their own individual personalities and character traits.

This book is the story told through the eyes of one of these children interwoven with a modern day story of a political family in South Carolina. This was also a completely pointless subplot that had no business being in the book and added absolutely nothing to the story. there was even a little romance, and even if this book all tied up a little too neatly at the end, I am a sucker for a happy ending!This book begins in Memphis in 1939 when twelve year old Rill Foss and her four younger siblings are awaiting the birth of another sibling.

Nothing takes you from thirty years old to thirteen faster than your mother's voice rebounding up the stairs like a tennis ball after a forehand slice. The kids were told that they were being taken so that their parents could later pick them up but Rill is beginning to realize that something more is going on. There is little doubt that the organization rescued many children from deplorable, dangerous circumstances, or simply accepted children who were unwanted and place them in loving home. The writing is exceptional and the two story lines keep the reader puzzled as to how they will connect for the first two thirds of the book making the end discoveries a very engaging read.In her brief moments of lucidity, her grandmother's appears to light up with recognition when she mentions May. I guess there are various ways the two stories can be told, but to tell the story of the terrible past without getting across the impact of that past on the lives of people far in the future - tragic events that changed lives - can't perhaps be done in any other way. Georgia Tann illegally adopted ,no sold,these children to the highest bidder, as if they were cattle. The Tennessee Children's society is the focus of this novel, harm against the helpless and most vulnerable among us and the poor who did not have the resources necessary to fight back.

The present day was filled with mystery and secrets while the past was filled with heartbreak and hope.In Memphis, 1939, the dreadful Miss Tann illegally acquires a family of five children who had been living a blissful life with their parents on a river boat. Such a well-written, powerful and emotional story, although most of the characters are fictional, it is based on true-life events. These past few months have rubbed us raw from the inside out, left each of us silently bleeding beneath our skins.
