it was amazing
Read in April, 2007

This book chronicles the author's discovery, and later in her life, subsequent visits with her mentally retarded sister. The girls' parents had had Anne, the author's sister, institutionalized from the time she was born. Anne was rarely visited by their parents. This book is a testament to how a family's dysfunctions can become very detrimental all members of the family in various ways. Don't overlook reading the Epilogue. It really knocked me out. This was a very well-written memoir.
