In 1950, parents sent their single unwed daughters to live in houses of shame as some called it. Forced to give up their babies in closed adoptions, these women had to go on with their lives, some living for decades without knowing what happened to their sons and daughters.
When seventeen-year-old Betty Hamilton is dropped off at Dartmouth Home for Wayward Girls, she’s left with only two things—a suitcase full of her belongings and the baby in her belly. After her letters to Charlie, the love of her life, go unanswered, Betty finds comfort in one friend and the prayers she can escape the home with her child. Her hope is dashed, however, when after her baby is born, it’s given to a couple in a closed adoption, and the home casts her back out on the streets alone. With nowhere to go but back to her parents house, she tries to make a new life while trying to forget the baby she lost and the man she loves but can’t find.
Being adopted wasn’t ever something that crossed Marlena’s mind. Her parents were her parents. But after her father becomes ill, and she discovers she can’t help him; they finally tell her the truth—they adopted her just hours after she was born from an unknown young woman from the Dartmouth Home for Wayward Girls. Now desperate for answers and on a quest to find her paternal parents, Marlena begins to uncover the secrets behind her real parents love, her birth, and what happened to both of them after her adoptive parents took her home. Will she ever meet her biological parents? Or will she be too late to find them before something happens to them?
