The Memory Keeper's Daughter by Kim Edwards

The Memory Keeper's Daughter Rating: 4 of 5 stars Read: January 2007 'In 1964, when a blizzard forces Dr. David Henry to deliver his own twins, he immediately recognizes that one of them has Down Syndrome and makes a split-second decision that will haunt their lives forever.' This book has had very mixed reviews, readers seem to love it or hate it. I found the writing honest and moving, I was caught up right from the beginning. What was mesmerising but at the same time, heartbreaking, was the very real human content of the story. A split second decision and a lifetime of consequences and impact on relationships. A very plausible and poignant read.
