    It's hard to believe that something like this could actually happen. I'm sure it happens more than we know. Thank goodness for unconditional love. This was a page turner and a tear jerker. Excellent book club read.

    This novel is the story of one family's downfall after a father's betrayal, and the creation of another family. When a doctor delivers his children, he finds that he has one perfect boy, and a girl with Down's syndrome. Unable to bear the affect he believes this will have on his family, he asks his assisting nurse to take the baby away. The novel outlines the distance he creates from his family to hide his secret, and the new family that is created when the nurse takes the little girl to raise as her own. A good read, definitely worth a beach chair and a cold drink!

    I read MKD for my book club. One a 1-5 scale, we gave it a 3. The story is interesting and keeps you reading. But some of us didn't care for the writing style; the author tended to tell you what you should be thinking about the plot instead of revealing information and allowing you to draw your own conclusions. It went from a slow pace in for the first 2/3rds of the book, then the last 1/3rd seemed to fly to get everything in and bring it to resolution.
