    Gennem tredive år kidnappede børnehjemslederen Georgia Tann fattige børn fra Sydstaterne og solgte dem til rige familier i hele USA. Inden vi blev jeres er en gribende roman baseret på denne skæbnesvangre og virkelige historie og er en bog til alle, der elskede Sarahs nøgle og Pigen uden navn. En stormfuld aften i 1939 efterlades den tolvårige Rill Foss og hendes fire små søskende alene på familiens husbåd på Mississippi-floden, da deres mor i al hast må fragtes til hospitalet. Næste morgen dukker et par politibetjente op og tvinger børnene til at tage med sig. De forsikrer dem om, at de nok skal blive genforenet med deres forældre, men i stedet for havner de på et usselt børnehjem, hvor Rill må kæmpe for at holde søskendeflokken samlet. Godt 75 år senere kaldes Avery Stafford hjem til South Carolina, da hendes far har brug for at have hende ved sin side, mens han fører valgkamp som senator. Under et besøg på et lokalt plejehjem møder Avery en ældre dame, der er fast overbevist om, at hun kender hende, og Avery tvinges til at grave i sin egen families fortid for at finde ud af, om der virkelig er en forbindelse eller ej.

    From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Before We Were Yours comes a new historical novel: the dramatic story of three young women searching for family amid the destruction of the postCivil War South, and of a modern-day teacher who learns of their story and its vital connection to her students' lives.Bestselling author Lisa Wingate brings to life startling stories from actual ';Lost Friends' advertisements that appeared in Southern newspapers after the Civil War, as newly freed slaves desperately searched for loved ones who had been sold away.Louisiana, 1875: In the tumultuous era of Reconstruction, three young women set off as unwilling companions on a perilous quest: Hannie, a freed slave; Lavinia, the pampered heir to a now destitute plantation; and Juneau Jane, Lavinia's Creole half sister. Each carries private wounds and powerful secrets as they head for Texas, following roads rife with vigilantes and soldiers still fighting a war lost a decade before. For Lavinia and Juneau Jane, the journey is one of stolen inheritance and financial desperation, but for Hannie, torn from her mother and siblings before slavery's end, the pilgrimage west reignites an agonizing question: Could her long-lost family still be out there? Beyond the swamps lie the limitless frontiers of Texas and, improbably, hope.Louisiana, 1987: For first-year teacher Benedetta Silva, a subsidized job at a poor rural school seems like the ticket to canceling her hefty student debtuntil she lands in a tiny, out-of-step Mississippi River town. Augustine, Louisiana, is suspicious of new ideas and new people, and Benny can scarcely comprehend the lives of her poverty-stricken students. But amid the gnarled live oaks and run-down plantation homes lie the century-old history of three young women, a long-ago journey, and a hidden book that could change everything.

    From the 1920s to 1950, Georgia Tann ran a corrupt baby business at the Tennessee Children's Home Society in Memphis. She offered up more than 5,000 orphans tailored to the wish lists of eager parents - hiding the fact that many weren't orphans at all, but stolen sons and daughters of poor families, desperate single mothers, and women told in maternity wards that their babies had died.The publication of Lisa Wingate's novel Before We Were Yours brought new awareness of Tann's child trafficking. Adoptees who knew little about their pasts gained insight into the startling facts behind their family histories. Encouraged by their contact with Wingate and award-winning journalist Judy Christie, who document the stories of fifteen adoptees in this book, many survivors set out to trace their roots and find their birth families.Before and After includes moving and shocking accounts of the ways in which adoptees were separated from their first families. Often raised as only children, many have joyfully reunited with siblings in the final decades of their lives. In Before and After, Wingate and Christie tell of first meetings that are all the sweeter and more intense for time missed, and of families from very different social backgrounds reaching out to embrace brothers, sisters, and cousins.
