 Synopsis

This story has been waiting a long time to be told. Norah's Children is a novel which has at its heart, a truth. There was a Norah, though I'm not sure that she even spelled her name that way. Norah did have five children and five different families ultimately took in those children. What those families were like, or how those children were actually reared, I do not know. I heard whispers long ago and, like the fine silk of a spider's web, they clung to me. I finally gathered those fragile threads and wove them within a story of "how it might have been."
