Ties That Bind is one woman’s journey on the path of self-discovery as she puts the pieces of her past together. Pat always knew she was adopted; she was reminded of it daily. What she didn’t know was the depth of the cover-up. With her private investigator husband, Charles, the couple takes off from California to Iowa to uncover the deep, dark secrets that have plagued her for more than half her life. Her journey to find out the truth exposes a more meaningful discovery giving Pat the peace she always yearned for.
Ties That Bind is a beautiful story which I genuinely enjoyed from beginning to end. Patsy has always known she was adopted but the more she tries to learn about her past the more secrets come up.
I did feel like the blurb on this one was a littler spoilery, since it hinted pretty heavily about what Pat would find at the end of her journey, but this was a worthwhile read all the same. A lot of important subjects were covered over the course of the book and the story will stay with you a long time after you’ve finished reading.
