Before We Were Yours
by Lisa Wingate

PBR Review Here we have an emotional and compelling story about a black market child trafficking ring. It is inspired by true events, which for me, makes it all the more meaningful. Avery Stafford is a successful federal prosecutor with a bright future unfolding. She returns home to help her father who is battling cancer. One day, while visiting a nursing home, she meets an elderly woman and knows, that somehow, there is a connection, between this woman and her grandmother. Thus begins her journey to uncover the truth. The book is written from two viewpoints, Averys, in the present and the other twelve-year-old Rill, set in 1939 Tennessee. Beware, this is a book that will steal your heart and stir up your emotions. Highly Recommend.Back.
Talking Points: Base on a true story of child exploitation, shedding light on the evilness and greed that allowed these events to happen. It is so hard to imagine how the parents of the kidnapped children felt and impossible to fathom how something like this continued for so many years. Think about it and you can't wrap your head around the fact that Georgia Tann was known as THE MOTHER OF ADOPTION. This story will leave you with a strong need to Google more on this topic.
PBR Reader Comments:
Inspired by true events, an emotional story about poor children who were kidnapped and sold to wealthy families, shedding light on a despicable practice that went on for too many years. Highly recommend.
