    Summary:

    Two families generations apart, are forever changed by heartbreaking injustice in this poignant novel, inspired by a true story.

    Memphis, 1939. Twelve year old Rill Foss and her 4 younger siblings live a magical life aboard their family’s Mississippi River shanty boat. But when their father must rush their mother to the hospital one stormy night, Rill is left in charge-until strangers arrive and the children are thrown into the Children’s Home Society orphanage. The Foss children are assured they will soon be returned to their parents-but quickly realizes the truth is much darker.

    Aiken, South Carolina, present day. Born into wealth and privilege, Avery Stanford seems to have it all: a successful career as a federal prosecutor, a handsome fiancé, and a lavish wedding on the horizon. When Avery returns home to help her father weather a health crisis, she takes a journey through her family’s long hidden history.

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

    June 2018

    On June 18 we will gather at the home of Mary Louise Selzer to discuss This Road We Traveled by Jane Kirkpatrick. We meet every third Monday at 10:00. A light snack is provided by the hostess.

    Tabitha Brown refuses to be left behind in Missouri when her son makes the decision to strike out for Oregon-even if she has to hire her own wagon to join the party. After all, family
    ties are stronger than fear.

    Along with her reluctant daughter and her ever-hopeful granddaughter, the intrepid Tabitha has her misgivings. The trials they face along the way will severely test her faith, courage, and ability to hope. With her family’s survival on the line, she must make the ultimate sacrifice, plunging deeper into the wilderness to seek aid. What she couldn’t know was how this frightening journey would impact how she understood her own life-and the greater part she had to play in history. This is a novel based on actual events.
