The Memory Keeper’s Daughter is an excellent book about the complex web of life. The doctor decides to give away his daughter because she has Down’s Syndrome. From there on out, everyone’s lives are dramatically affected. Every character is deeply developed. This book is more about people and their lives than any sort of plot twist. It is not a book about a kid with disabilities, but rather the impact of one act on many lives. This book really touches the heart of life, both beautiful and ugly. I highly recommend that you read it. Though it is not necessarily action packed, it is well steeped in realistic life. I loved this book and hope you will too.
