The Memory Keeper's Daughter by Kim Edwards

I read a lot of wonderful reviews about this book, but I just didn't see what they were seeing I guess. I found most of the main characters unlikable, which made it difficult for me to have the emotional connection that was needed to really enjoy this book. The main character David especially. I found him to be a self-righteous, patronizing, son of a bitch. Pardon the french! I guess if the intended purpose of the book was to make me outraged then it succeeded. On the otherhand, it was a well written book, and would make an excellent book for discussion.
