Book Review: Before We Were Yours

Before We Were Yours is based on the true story of the mistreatment, abuse and neglect of 'orphans' by the Tenessee Children's Home Society, under the 'guidance' of Georgia Tann. While the characters in the novel are fictional, their stories represent a few of the estimated 5,000 children were stolen between 1924 and 1950 by the Society.  It has been alleged that as many as 500 children died under Georgia Tann's 'care.'
