A story so compelling, you will share it with everyone you know. Without a doubt, the writing style is beautiful and draws you in. However, the heart of this book revolves around the depth of the characters and the complexities of the plot. Once they start to resonate with you, you will read this book straight through to the end and feel sad when it is finished.

At first glance, Mrs. Richardson is the perfect mother. She and her family seem to have an ideal life, in an upscale community, where everything is well planned, and there are rules for everything, right down to the colors allowed for your home. Mia, on the other hand, appears selfish and nomadic, moving from town to town, never putting down roots, and dragging her teenage daughter along. But, as the lives of these two women unfold and get entangled, you gradually begin to see that all is not as it seems.

Another critical part of this story revolves around the adoption of a Chinese baby by Mrs. Richardsons friends, who are unable to have children of their own. As the adoption process proceeds, there are complications, ending in a fierce custody battle. Issues such as inter-racial adoption, child abandonment, and income inequities are examined. Highly recommend.Back.
