Before We Were Yours is a heart wrenching story focusing on the crimes of the Tennessee Children’s Home Society at the hands of Georgia Tann. This novel is based on a true story. The author manages to incorporate the seriousness of the crimes that Ms. Tann committed, with amazing historical accuracy, while also adding her own style to the story. This novel focuses on a series of illegal adoptions carried out by Ms. Tann in the early to mid 1900’s. Fans of the historical fiction, non-fiction, drama, and thriller genres will appreciate this story of love, loss, and the importance of justice. However, due to the fact that this book is based on a true story, there may be some scenes that readers find violent; therefore, please take caution when reading this book if you are not comfortable with violence. @avidreader16 of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library
