Sisters. What unites three women

This is a story of abandonment and discovery, of silence and of sharing, of how fate has shaped the lives of three women and of how their efforts have changed their lives. 

One day, six-year-old Shelly followed her classmate Sian home from school. They grew up like sisters. 

Thirty years later Shelly discovers that she has a biological sister named Linda. An intimate and compelling story of adoption and friendship; three women whose lives were profoundly changed by the events of June 25, 1954.
