Join award-winning author ReShonda Tate Billingsley in a talk back session.  Get the book, The Stolen Daughter, and have an intimate discussion about the page-turning novel that highlights the power—and fragility—of family, personal identity, and the choices we are called on to make . . .

BOOK DESCRIPTION:  Raised by a widowed mother, Jill Reed has come a long way from her difficult youth. But while she may not have had money, Jill never doubted she was rich in love. Her mother, Connie, made Jill the center of her world. Now, even though she has a young family of her own, it's Jill's turn to care for her ailing mother.

When early dementia begins to set in, Connie starts talking about Jill's "other life." Jill assumes it's just rambling confusion. Still, Connie's stories about Jill's childhood, and her father's early death, never quite added up. And when a strange man shows up to Jill's job bearing news that turns Jill's life upside down, there's no denying Connie's devastating secret.

As Jill sets out to learn more about her past, she's stunned by what she learns and what it will mean for her future. Now, she must decide what price she's willing to pay to claim the life that's rightfully hers.
