Shadow Train: A Journey Between
Relinquishment and Reunion

Patricia E. Taylor


This book describes one woman's story as she moved through her life after relinquishing her first born child to strangers. Not only was she continuously affected by her loss---her entire family dealt with the effects of this outcome, thrust upon her as the only possible solution, despite the fact that she wanted to raise her child herself. Shadow Train also describes the courageous journey to reunion undertaken by the author, her daughter, the author's family, her daughter's adoptive family and the birthfather's family. The book outlines the emotional experience of rebuilding a relationship after a nineteen year forced separation and the depth of pain which must be overcome by the author and her daughter in building their relationship.
