She Turned Her Head Away is a memoir that speaks powerfully of the emotions commonly felt by adopted children and adult adoptees, of questions of identity, and experiences of family and belonging. It is especially relevant today, as commercial genetic testing companies can reveal family secrets and uncover emotions that may have been buried for years. She Turned Her Head Away is a heart-stopping story that is hard to put down.
About the Author: Patricia Moffat is Pat Ohlendorf-Moffat, an award-winning magazine journalist, and a reunited adoptee.

Book Review Feb. 16, 2021
I just finished reading Patricia Moffat’s book, She Turned Her Head Away. Patricia is an adoptee born in the 1940s and it’s about her search for family in the 1970s (prior to the internet and all the time saving options that have come about using it and all of the online search help!) This book is definitely a good read where the author shares her thoughts and feelings during her search and when she reunites with her mother, half siblings and extended family. Patricia covers the emotional roller coaster with her adoptive parents as well. I highly recommend this book.
