This was a really interesting story. I did not know a lot about the kidnapping/paid adoption issue that occurred in the early part of the 1900’s, so that storyline was interesting. It reminded me of reading Orphan Train, which is another book that takes place in the same time period and about adoptions. Although the book is well written and well researched, i struggled with connecting to the characters... at times i just lost interest is Avery’s story (especially when she droned on about the political issues her father (and the family) were facing.
The 2nd part of the book was more engaging for me in general. Solid story though and interesting historical fiction plot.
