Overall pretty good

The ending felt rushed and I am not totally sure I like the whole twin thing, but otherwise I really enjoyed this book

A heart wrenching story I couldn’t put down!

Such a well written heart wrenching story! I was intrigued and couldn’t put it down! It makes me think of all the young mothers forced to give their baby away.
