About Patti's latest book:
Patti Callahan Henry returns with her best, most personal and moving story to date. AND THEN I FOUND YOU is inspired by her family's personal experience with adoption. The novel explores one of the most difficult decisions a mother could face and tells the story of the bravery it takes to find one’s place in the world and a miraculous reunion that changes everyone’s lives forever.
Henry’s sister, Barbi, placed her baby daughter for adoption over twenty years ago. She chose the family carefully and then waited. Twenty years later she heard from her daughter, Catherine. Catherine had stumbled upon her birth certificate and discovered her birth mother's name. After requesting permission from her parents to locate her birth mother, Catherine performed a Google search. Her birth mother’s name didn't pop up, but her novelist sister's did. Catherine couldn't believe the resemblance and immediately sent a Facebook request to Patti and her birth mother. And so their story begins. The anniversary of that Facebook reunion - of their family reunion three years ago - happens to coincide with the publication of the book in April. One could never have planned that.
In AND THEN I FOUND YOU Henry creates the wonderful characters of Kate, Jack, and Emily to capture the emotional truths of the way families connect and what happens when the lost becomes found. The story will resonate with anyone who has ever longed for a second chance, a new beginning and the joyful change that reunions bring to a family. You won’t forget the courage, heartbreak, healing, and redemption made possible in Henry’s capable hands.
