The Memory Keeper’s Daughter is a novel by Kim Edwards. In this book there's a couple, the husband is an orthopedic surgeon and they just had twins. He gave the girl twins away well his wife was still unconscious because she had some birth defects. When he was a little boy his sister was the same way born with birth defects and all his mother's attention went to her, he didn't want that same thing to happen to him son. He sent his daughter with the nurse who went to this home where they had no idea she was coming and told her to leave. This lead to her leaving with this new born baby to raise on her own and was she ever scared. The point of the book as I can tell thus far is about lying. I feel the husband lying about the death of his child will come back to bite him in the butt the author puts little hints in there to make you believe this.
