Summary: ''This moving work recalls the sixties' prodigious effect on a generation of Americans that came of age during that transformative decade of changing mores. Janet Mason Ellerby follows the crooked path she took from a protected and privileged childhood and early adolescence to her unplanned pregnancy and banishment, to her daughter's birth and adoption. She then delves into the complex journey embarked on over the next thirty-five: years, haunted by her first child's memory and attem
pting to compensate for her loss. Ellerby crafts a cultural and personal memoir, relating and reflecting upon middle-class American attitudes that informed the conservative suburbs of the fifties, through the political revolution of the sixties, the seventies, and on to today. In so doing, she provides a personal commentary on the shifts in adoption culture and describes the overlooked heartbreak that many birthmothers endure.''--BOOK JACKET.
