   Based on one of America's most notorious real-life scandals in which Georgia Tann, director of a Memphis-based adoption organization, kidnapped and sold poor children to wealthy families all over the country

   “Lisa Wingate takes an almost unthinkable chapter in our nation’s history and weaves a tale of  enduring power. That Georgia Tann and her Memphis Tennessee Children’s Home Society could actually exist, unraveling the lives of countless children,  stealing their pasts and changing their futures, will  give you chills. But the real feat of this stirring novel is how deeply Wingate plunges us into the heart and mind of twelve-year-old river-gypsy, Rill Foss. Rill’s  utterly singular voice will stay with you long after  the last page is turned, as will Wingate’s courage to  follow her anywhere . . .
