I am reviewing We Were Yours through Ballantine Books and Netgalley:
In Memphis 1939 twelve year old Rill Foss and her four younger siblings live a magical life on their family’s shanty boat.
President Day Aiken, South Carolina, Avery Stratford was born into wealth and privilege.
This novel is based on a real life Scandall where Georgia Tann the director of a Memphis adoption agency kidnapped children and sold them to wealthy families.
When Avery Stratford a successful federal prosecutor goes home to help her ailing Father, secrets are brought to life. Secrets that revolve around Georgia Tann and the Tennessee Children’s home.
I give Before We Were Yours five out of five stars.
