Susan Bennett's Late Discoveries recounts the discovery by the author of the fact that she had been adopted. At forty-four, that must have been a blow. She had always felt something was missing but had no idea what.

This short autobiography is rather compelling in its content. Susan's search for her birth parents leads her down a path she probably later wished she had not taken.

Having two adoptees in my immediate family, I think I can understand how this woman was feeling. Both my adopted grandchildren know they were adopted and are okay with it. Should they wish to know where they came from, we are all ready to assist. Whatever may be revealed.

Poor Susan wasn't too lucky with her findings. Her story moves quickly and is written with a hand that is new to writing. It could use at least one more edit.
