Today's young women will not understand how our families made us feel shame so intensely; we surrendered our first-born children to strangers. Faith Reynolds 

The widely anticipated debut novel by Julia Brewer Daily is a glimpse into the lives of women forced by society to gift their newborns to strangers. Although this novel is a fictional account, it mirrors many of the adoption stories of its era.

When three young unwed women meet at a maternity home hospital in New Orleans in 1965, they are expected to relinquish their babies and return home as if nothing transpired. Twenty-five years later, they are brought back together by blackmail and their secrets threatened with exposure??all the way to the White House.

Told from the three women's perspectives in alternating chapters, we are mesmerized by the societal pressures on women in the 1960s who find themselves pregnant without marriage. Would you be able to give your first-born to strangers? Millions did. How that inconceivable act changed them forever is the story of No Names To Be Given, a novel with southern voices, love exploited, heartbreak and blackmail.… (mais)

I'm sad to say I had to dnf this book. It just wasn't for me. I was really intrigued by the synopsis but when I started reading I just couldn't get into it or feel invested in the characters. The writing style was different and that played a part in why I couldn't seem to get really invested in the story. I just couldn't seem to connect to the characters. I still think the premise of the book is very good and stories like this need to be shared. I'm sure that many will like this book but it just wasn't for me.

I truly enjoyed this book! The characters are interesting and deep, the plot moves at a nice pace, and the reality of these hidden homes and hidden shame is a sad and fascinating subject. ( )

This is a truly wonderful story. The three story within it are beautiful, poignant yet haunting. You find yourself thinking about the experience and what could have been done instead. No experience is the same; yet they are in a way. The emotional roller coaster will definitely be felt with this one. Beautiful, emotional, and heartfelt story. I recommend you read it. I would have given it 10 stars if I could have. ( )

I feel terrible about this, but I didn't finish this book. I made it through about twenty percent before I set it aside. I wanted to enjoy it! I really liked the premise, and I think it had a lot of potential, but it just didn't feel well done to me. The characters were more like caricatures, and I had a hard time connecting to any of them. The author really just told us what was happening, rather than immersing us in the world.

I'm sad that I didn't enjoy it, because I really wanted to!

This book is a DNF for me.

The premise is intriguing. Three unwed mothers meet at a discreet maternity home, where they are later forced to give their babies up for adoption.

The writing of the story, however, was not for me. Everything seemed very flat and one-dimensional, which really threw me out of the story. Some elements seemed very anachronistic for the time period. There were also a few things that made the characters feel poorly developed and/or researched; for example, Becca's black boyfriend mentions both Emmett Till's lynching and references The Negro Motorist's Greenbook, as though those were the only two references the author could think of in regards to segregation in the south during the era.

I also found that I just did not care about what was happening to the characters, probably because they felt so poorly developed. According to my Kindle, I only made it 20% in before calling it quits.

I received a free eCopy of this book from LibraryThing Early Reviewers in exchange for an honest review. ( )
