9781402775703: Jessica Lost: A Story of Birth, Adoption & The Meaning of Motherhood

A mother and her child, lost and then found again after four decades: this extraordinary story of love, loss, and reunion is told in alternating voices by the two women, each relating her own powerful experience.
For the mother, it's the tale of an unhappy marriage followed by betrayal, a pregnancy of uncertain paternity, and the heartrending decision to give up her newborn. The daughter's search begins 40 years later, as she slowly, painstakingly, stitches together her story.
These intertwined tales give us two unforgettable points of view of a remarkable journey-and of the multiple meanings of motherhood.
