El invierno de 1964, una repentina tormenta cubre de nieve el área de Lexington, Kentucky. Las carreteras son peligrosas, pero el doctor David Henry está decidido a conducir al hospital a su mujer, Norah, para que pueda dar a luz a su primer hijo. Pronto se hace evidente que las carreteras son demasiado traicioneras y decide pararse en su propia consulta médica. Aquí, con la ayuda de su enfermera, Caroline, puede asistir al parto de su hijo Paul. Pero de manera inesperada, Norah pare una segunda criatura, una niña, Phoebe, en quien David reconoce inmediatamente el síndrome de Down. David decide ahorrar a su muj
"A brilliantly-crafted, stunning debut, The Memory Keeper's Daughter, explores the way life takes unexpected turns, and how the mysterious ties that hold a family together help us survive the heartache that occurs when long-buried secrets burst into the open. During a snowstorm on a winter night in 1964, David's young wife, Norah, goes into labor prematurely. When the storm prevents her obstetrician from attending the birth, David and his nurse, Caroline, must handle it themselves. Caroline puts Norah to sleep ?a standard practice then and David delivers an unanticipated set of twins. His son, born first, is perfectly healthy. Yet when his daughter is born, he sees immediately that she has Down s syndrome. Haunted by the memory of growing up with a chronically ill sister and rationalizing it as a need to protect Norah, his wife, David makes a split-second decision that will alter all of their lives forever. He asks Caroline to take his infant daughter to an institution and never to.
