Margaret and Charles Lewin adopted Isaiah as a newborn - giving the boy all the love a child could want and everything money can buy. But can even the most loving, caring white family be responsible for raising a black child?

Selma Richards is the boy's natural mother. At his birth, she was illiterate, unemployed, and a crack addict. Giving up her son was the best thing for both of them - at the time.

Selma is now off drugs, learning to read, and has a responsible job. She's not rich and doesn't live in the best neighborhood, but she's healed herself. And now she wants her son back.

Seth Margolis raises a complex and emotional moral question while giving the listener an understanding of the pain and conflict that leads to the inevitable heart-rending conclusion, in which one mother ends up losing her son. Download and start listening now!

    " Having seen the movie before reading the book, I must admit I liked the movie better than the book. The both are very dissimilar. A lot was different. Bsically, the characters' names and the plot were the same, but that was it. "

    " Sad book. I sympathized with both families but ultimately thought Isaiah should have stayed with the Lewins. "

    " I have mixed feelings about this book. I got sucked in but was also so frustrated with some of the characters that I wasn't sure who to root for. "
