    On a winter night in 1964, Dr. David Henry is forced by a blizzard to deliver his own twins. His son, born first, is perfectly healthy. Yet when his daughter is born, he sees immediately that she has Down's Syndrome. Rationalizing it as a need to protect Norah, his wife, he makes a split-second decision that will alter all of their lives forever. He asks his nurse to take the baby away to an institution and never to reveal the secret.

    Amy says: "The worst book yet!"
    "no so good"
    Overall

    While the plot idea was good, the climax of the story was over in the first ten minutes. I really wanted to like this book, but it really went nowhere very slowly and had no point. There were no real twists, turns, or confrontations...just decades of unhappy lives.

    Deftly written and emotionally powerful, Drowning Ruth is a stunning portrait of the ties that bind sisters together and the forces that tear them apart, of the dangers of keeping secrets and the explosive repercussions when they are exposed. A mesmerizing and achingly beautiful debut.

    Steven says: "Drowning Ruth"
    "Fairly Good"
    Overall

    This was a fairly good book. I enjoyed the muttled mind of the narrator. It made it more believable. I would recommend this book.
