I had no idea about the history this book was based on, and it breaks my heart. Children in the late 1930s South are being kidnapped from their parents and adopted out to wealthy families. The orphanage runners profit from these adoptions, while abusing and neglecting these children. I‘m grateful Lisa Wingate is sharing this story, so this heartbreaking history is not forgotten. It reminds us to be vigilant and be a voice for justice.
