I feel kind of bad giving this less than par review, but I didn't like this book all too much. I will admit that it was beautifully written and there was so much description and beautiful sounding prose that I liked, but the plot was dreadfully slow and depressing. I honestly think that the only thing that kept me going after the first several chapters was the need to know how and when everyone would gradually find out about the horrible thing that David Henry did to his family by giving away his new daughter who was born with Down Syndrome. Had the book been poorly written, I don't think I would have been able to finish it. It depressed to read about these people's lives which didn't seem to get any better with age and only seemed to get sadder and sadder as their time went on. No one was close, and those were were seemed to have other issues. Strangely enough, I would recommend this book, but only to people who can read realistic books, and perhaps romance novels, because ultimately, this was a (strange) happy ending. ( )

Children being treated like meat puppets, disabled children being lesser, unwanted, cheating spouses and gawdlike doctors...spare me.

Very mawkish writing, quite clearly aiming to Be Emotional and Send A Message:
You can't stop time. You can't capture light. You can only turn your face up and let it rain down.
–and–
She imagined herself as some sort of vessel to be filled up with love. But it wasn't like that. The love was within her all the time, and its only renewal came from giving it away.
Pleased for you if this guff makes you happy. It does not make me anything but irked. ( )

Leading a life based on lies, small and one particularly large one, David Henry and his family have to live with themselves -- and are missing out on their personal growth because they do not raise their daughter with Downs' syndrome. ( )

Can't remember why but I did not like this novel. Says a lot really. Library copy, thank goodness.

Much better than expected. Good writing, fascinating plot, successful use of multiple narrators. Though this was definitely a plot-driven novel and I sped through wanting to know how everything was resolved, it was also a relatively quiet book that focused on all of the characters' inner lives. My only wish was that Phoebe, the daughter in question, had been allowed to "speak". Though that may have been pretty ambitious and possibly out of the author's range (since Phoebe has Down's Syndrome). Maybe it would have ended up being too gimmicky. Or possibly it was because this book wasn't really her story; it was really her parents' story. Overall, a good read that I'd recommend. ( )

Kim Edwards's debut novel is a winner, and those who read THE MEMORY KEEPER'S DAUGHTER are going to want to read her next one. Highly recommended.

They'd live their lives day by day, each one taking them another step away from their lost daughter.
... when he slid his arms around her again, he was thinking, I love you. I love you so much, and I lied to you. And the distance between them, millimeters only, the space of a breath, opened up and deepened, became a cavern at whose edge he stood.
Their lost daughter still hovered between them; their lives had shaped themselves around her absence.
She did not know that her discarded clothes fluttered in a wind that he himself had set in motion so many years ago.
This was the grief he had carried with him, heavy as a stone in his heart. This was the grief he had tried to spare Norah and Paul, only to create so many others.
