The Girls Who Went Away

Ann Fessler

In this deeply moving and myth-shattering work, Ann Fessler brings out into the open for the first time the astonishing
untold history of the million and a half women who surrendered children for adoption due to enormous family and social
pressure in the decades before Roe v. Wade. An adoptee who was herself surrendered during those years and recently made
contact with her mother, Ann Fessler brilliantly brings to life the voices of more than a hundred women, as well as the
spirit of those times, allowing the women to tell their stories in gripping and intimate detail.
