Finished Book #29 of 2006

While the kids' snow boarded, I read.

While the kids' played Nintendo, I read.

And when the kids' read, I read.

First time I've read a book since the beginning of August.

From the back cover:

"This stunning novel begins on a winter night in 1964 when a blizzard forces Dr. David Henry to deliver his own twins. His son, born first, is perfectly healthy, but the doctor immediately recognizes that his daughter has Down's syndrome. For motives he tells himself are good, he makes a split second decision that will haunt all their lives forever. He asks his nurse, Caroline, to take the baby away to an institution. Instead, she disappears into another city to raise the child as her own."

I'd give it a 7.5 out of 10.
