The Booke Show #946

Albany, NY – Gretchen's guest this week is author Kim Edwards, whose new book "The Memory Keeper's Daughter" tells the story of a doctor who sends away his newborn baby, afflicted with Downs Syndrome, and tells his wife the baby died. A nurse disregards the doctor's instructions and raises the child on her own, which leads to the Downs Syndrome child leading a parallel and secret life apart from her biological family.
