Description

The shocking story of Geogia Tann, a notorious dealer in black-market babies between 1920 and 1950 whose actions ultimately popularized--and corrupted--adoption as we know it today.

For almost three decades, renowned baby-seller Georgia Tann ran a children's home in Memphis, Tennessee--selling her charges to wealthy clients nationwide, Joan Crawford among them. Part social history, part detective story, part expose, The Baby Thief is a riveting investigative narrative that explores themes that continue to reverberate today.

    I felt like this book wasn’t quite as organized as I’d like & sometimes tended to go too far off subject. The epilogue at the end was my favorite as it had some very interesting fun facts. All over ok written book... I will say that I did learn a lot- which is why I purchased it in the first place.
