The depth of honesty combined with the twists and turns made it a book hard to put down. The story was an intimate look into someone actually discovering their own story. Compelling to the end.... And what a ride!!!!
Realizing how many hours Paul's team of dedicated genealogists, both professional and amateur, spent on discovering his true story is inspiring and illustrates well the caring of the genealogical community. This is a must-read for those of us who have worked on our own family trees.
My heart ached for the little boy, trying to fit in, for the teen, knowing he didn't.
It broke for the baby, and for the toddler, and especially, for the twins.
But it rejoiced for Jack, and for Emily.
Because at its base, this is the story of family.
This was one of the most unusual memoirs I have read. The basic event is so bizarre that it leads one to resort to cliches: "You can't make this stuff up. Truth can be stranger than fiction.
That a baby could be kidnapped at age 1 1/2 days and completely vanish is strange enough. That the family could claim a toddler a couple of years later as their missing baby is even stranger.
These books I do not put down: I read them straight through. Usually these kinds of stories end happily. This one did, too. Partially.
