The Memory Keeper's Daughter

by Kim Edwards

The Memory Keepers Daughter by Kim EdwardsThis book was some serious reading.  I liked it for its humanness and hated it for its sadness and loneliness.  The premise of the story is that of a man struggling with an enormous secret that he kept in an effort to protect someone he loved and the consequences of that secret.  He was sad man; lonely and always searching for something in his life that he never really found.

You can read more about the book here.

*PS After my rant in my Water for Elephants post about being a reading poser, when I searched for an image for this post I found out this book is a movie too!  Came out in 2008 as a TV movie, I am going to check see if they have it on Netflix!

*PPS I watched Water for Elephants.  It was good, but not The Notebook good like I was hoping for.  I am sure I would have thought so if I had not read the book first.  So if you have not seen, nor read.  SEE FIRST READ SECOND.

  1. Guess what? The Memory Keeper's Daughter was just on TV last weekend!! I have the book, but haven't read it yet. I think I might have completed the first two chapters, then got any farther. That said, the movie was not bad...but I have rarely seen a movie that I like as well as the book. I guess I'm hard to please!
