An amazing true story. Unbelievable this could happen to anyone; no record of birth and just given away. A journey of a lifetime to find the truth through faith, perseverance, and endurance. Whether a person questions their past or not, this is still a read about injustice done and makes you wonder how many others in the world this has happened to. Also a book to help others unravel lies, mysteries, unanswered questions about their own families. A must read for all.

This book was readable and interesting, but not what I expected. That may be my fault, but I thought there would be more about the story that between 1945 an 1973, babies were given away for adoption. INstead this book it the personal memoir of Nadean Stone. Granted she has a very interesting story. For me, they just included way too many details.

This book is honestly one of the best books I have ever read. Not only a story of Nadean’s quest to find her birth mother, this is a story of a woman who perseveres despite huge hardships and still has the ability to love unconditionally. All of us can learn a lesson from her by reading 📖 this!

Excellent read! Very well written! Fast moving story. Unable to put the book down!
I was primarily interested in the author's search for her biological parents, but, for better or worse, it took a lot to get there. Her story is mostly told chronologically; much happens before the DNA test. I had heard of the author's search through Croatian and Slovenian genealogy facebook groups. And while DNA does not say that we are related, apparently Nadean's bio parents come from the same area as my paternal grandparents.

No Stone Unturned is an easy read. I read it in a day. The text in

What an incredible life story. I met Nadean Stone and she signed my copy of the book just a few weeks ago in August. It was amazing to meet the woman who put so much work into putting her personal story out into the world. This story needed to be told.

What she went through throughout life is incredible. She grappled with many different identities, as a mother, wife, and daughter. Even though I'm not adopted, I connected to many parts of her story.

I also live in Vermont. I was happy to read abo
