Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate

A heart wrenching story of a family that was torn apart when 5 siblings were taken from their home while their parents were at the hospital having twins. A baby broker who ran several orphan homes, from 1920-1950, commits crimes unthinkable by stealing children and then selling them to wealthy people. In this story the granddaughter of one of the victims uncovers truths to her family's past. Based on the true story of the Tennessee Children's Home Society. A quick good read.

July's LibraryReads Favorite is: The Lying Game
A Novel
by Ruth Ware
(Gallery/Scout Press) “Isa and her friends are boarding school misfits who are notorious for playing “the lying game.” The more believable your lies, the more points you earn. A suicide at the school results in the girls being expelled under a cloud of suspicion. Fifteen years later, Isa hasn’t seen her three closest girlfriends in a decade, but one text will bring them together again to deal with their deadly childhood secrets. I could not put this atmospheric book down. This is definitely going to be a summer hit.” -Virginia Grubbs, Darien Library, Darien, CT
