the memory keeper’s daughter



The Memory Keeper’s Daughter is a novel by American author, KIM EDWARDS, that tells the story of a man who gives away his newborn baby, who has down syndrome , to one of the nurses.

i can sum this up in few words. sad but true. in the real world, its the kind of story that however u wanted it to end happily, it will not.reality bites, not all story is a fairytale. one decision can affect the entire people involved. one decision, will make or break the character’s future. because truth hurts, it is easier to lie and and lie to cover up the past mistakes, but in the end, only, the truth will set us free. that is the moral lesson of the story.

  1. i have read this last year…it is a bleak story…still i cannot abide with what he did, he never gave his own daughter a chance. his instinct as a doctor prevailed rather than his instinct as a father to still choose to love his imperfect daughter for however long she can stay on this earth. i really resented his character 😦
