I absolutely loved this heartbreakingly beautiful piece of writing! I’d give this book 10 stars if I could! “Before We Were Yours” by Lisa Wingate grabbed me from the very beginning, tossed my emotions around like a salad, and never let go! I didn’t want it to end.

I couldn’t tear myself away from this novel. I needed to know the ending; I needed to know how the stories were connected. It didn’t take long to feel like you knew the characters in the story personally. My head and heart have been wrapped up in this story from the beginning. Heartbreaking – and yet shines the power on love and the bonds of sisterhood. Bravo!

This book spans generations, alternating between present-day and the past. The “past” story is narrated by the oldest Foss sibling, Rill (aka May). Avery Stafford, a former federal prosecutor and the daughter of a prominent Senator, tells the present-day story. Gradually, the two storylines intersect and the connection comes to light.
The fictional story of the five Foss children parallels the real life experiences of hundreds of victims of Georgia Tann’s illegal adoption agency, the Tennessee Children’s Home Society. The children are stolen from their family’s riverboat one night in 1939. Their parents have to go to the hospital due to complications with their mother’s pregnancy and childbirth. Left alone, the children are taken by corrupt police officers working for the notorious child trafficker.
