Please take a look at Paige Adams Strickland's review of my memoir in her Blog, Akin to the Truth: A Memoir of Adoption and Identity

An excerpt from Paige's review: "Gambutti’s style of storytelling is something anyone adopted and questioning their existence and circumstances can relate to, regardless of age bracket/era. The complexity of the adoptee’s search for place and self in this world is universal, powerful and effectively explained in this memoir."

Thank you for reading my work!

Until next time,

Mary Ellen
