  • Women's Studies
  • Adoption
  • 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.
