Publisher's Summary

On a business trip, a high-powered 56-year-old American entrepreneur visits his partners in China. After their meeting, his Asian mentor invites him to an orphanage, a trip that will change the course of his family’s life forever. Without hesitation, he and his wife fall in love with Anglo/Asian twin girls and become their adoptive parents.

The children grow up in a world of twists and turns with multiple coincidences and synchronicity. Their journey takes them from China to Europe to America and back to China where their unusual birth mother enters their lives.

This powerful story is filled with drama at every turn as the daughters face internal and external challenges. The Birth Mother is a story filled with love, pathos, tragedy, and triumph. Listen, laugh, cry, and learn. It’s a tale you will never forget.

Awful!

This book was so condescending and sickly sweet. The characters were too saintly and “perfect” and lacked depth. Disliked Darryl, whose constant praise and admiration of his wife, kids, work ethic and himself made me want to barf. Also didn’t like the constant religious references. Narrations were also awful, particularly the one for the author. Couldn’t finish the book - and that’s rare for me...

Made my skin crawl

Awful, it’s a shame that such a good story was spoilt by creepy Darryl who believed he was so wonderful , poor Maxine. The book is overly mushy and condescending

Started out well but very disappointed with the ending

I enjoyed the beginning 74% of story but the end was not very good in my opinion.
