Doing My Research

I recently finished an amazing book called Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate. This is not a book review post, but I will take a moment to praise the author on her writing style. She did such a great job keeping the reader invested. I couldn’t put the book down. It’s a wonderful book for anyone who enjoys reading about true life events. The story line of the book is fictional, but the basis of the idea of the book is a true event.

When I read a book that says it is based on true events, I like to research the topic just to be sure. For this book, the research I have been doing is based on the Tennessee Children’s Home Society Scandal. This is such a sad and tragic event but fascinating at the same time. I feel so heartbroken for the children and families that were torn apart. I mourn the children who lost their lives to this scandal. Having children of my own, this hits extremely close to home.

I hope my fellow bookworms give this book a read. It is a fantastic book. I look forward to learning more about this scandal and reading more from this author as well.

  1. I may try that book but I get saddened so easily. Those kinds of books can leave you wounded in the heart. It is devastating what some children have been through.

    1. I agree. I get saddened easily as well but this book was so amazing. It does have very sad parts and I did feel like my heart broke for the characters. But it’s definitely a good book to read.
