[6/10/2016] Third read.
This is one of Nora's best. Complex plot. Complex characters, though not the most likeable. Doesn't have the humor I really look for from her. But the story is a powerful one. How would you react if you suddenly learned that you were not who you thought you were, that you had been stolen from your birth family as an infant and sold to another family.
Nora Roberts is fascinated by families. A lot of her books are about family, at their basic level. What constitutes family, how they impact their members lives, how they can be created, broken, and repaired. Even her books as J.D. Robb are about family. I enjoy seeing all the different ways she can treat the family dynamics.
