Summary
What happens when two sisters who were torn apart when their young mother abandoned them - and grew up in tragically different circumstances - reunite thirty-five years later to find her? Natalie Clark knew never to ask her sensitive adoptive mother questions about her past. She doesn't even know her birth mother's name - only that the young woman signed parental rights over to the state when Natalie was a baby. Now Natalie's own daughter must complete a family tree project for school, and Natalie is determined to unearth the truth about her roots. Brooke Walker doesn't have a family. At least, that's what she tells herself after being separated from her mother and her little sister at age four. Having grown up in a state facility and countless foster homes, Brooke survives the only way she knows how, by relying on herself. So when she discovers she's pregnant, Brooke faces a heart-wrenching decision: give up her baby or raise the child completely on her own. Scared and confused, she feels lost until a surprise encounter gives her hope for the future
