Description
"In 1928, 16-year-old Minka was on a picnic in the woods when she was assaulted and raped [and became pregnant]. The baby was secretly born, named Betty Jane, and given up for adoption. For decades, Minka wrote letters trying to get news of her daughter; she kept loving and praying for her, even though she never dared believe they would meet again. Until nearly eighty years later, when Minka whispered [a] secret, impossible prayer for the first time ... Unbeknownst to Minka, that very same day, a judge was releasing the sealed adoption records to her 77-year-old daughter. And soon, Minka's phone would ring"--Amazon.com.
