Read in November, 2010

Outstanding memoir written by four siblings recalling what began as a perfect childhood but soon changed following the close deaths of both of their parents. After the mom (who was a recognizable soap opera actress) died a slow death to cancer, all the Welch kids were put into different homes, some permanently living with families they had never met. This book is the memory of those dark and challenging years from each one of the children, and their struggle to reunite. Even though each "kid" has their own writing style, one chapter just flows into the next, and at times, I had trouble putting this book down. The bonus is you can visit and see photo's of the family then and now (as there are few pictures in the book).
