Amanda's mom gave me this one on CD. I thought it sounded interesting. Certainly a thinker... what the Dad goes through his whole life after having given away his daughter, both of his own making, and of his own acceptance. Mostly the moral is tell the truth! Though on top of that I would say... don't even consider giving your kid away just because you think she will be difficult to raise!!! Ugh. At least in the story, the daughter was raised by a very loving woman who took good care of her. I don't know what I would do if I had a handicapped child, but I sure as heck wouldn't give her away. I'd just have to rely on Someone Else's unconditional love to help me raise her.
OK. Rant over. Interesting book, but I'm not sure that I got much more than I already knew by reading the back cover.
