Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate

before

Based on the true story of American child-trafficker Georgia Tann, this book is an easy and captivating read. When Avery Stafford returns home to help her father overcome health problems, she also discovers some discordant family facts. She’s compelled to look into their history and begins to uncover shocking surprises. I really enjoyed this novel, but I often didn’t like the writing, which I found very mainstream. Key facts are repeated unnecessarily, descriptions are sometimes hackneyed, and Avery’s love story is so predictable, I felt like I was being hit over the head each time it surfaced in the plot.
