  • I learned a lot and enjoyed this book.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The absolute shock and dismay that greeted those tiny babies felt very real and the difficulties of managing their upbringing were portrayed well. The young protagonist fell into the situation and I found her believable. So much was done wrong as the girls grew, with people taking advantage of their uniqueness. Plenty of Canadian history too. An unexpected pleasure to read - thanks Kobo for suggesting it!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • The Quintland Sisters

    Enjoyed reading about the Quints. But sad the way they were brought up. Three of us named after the Quints in my family. I lost my twin at birth and was just under 2 lbs when I was born. A 6 week preemie and the youngest of 4 girls. Marie, Yvonne, Arlette and me Annette. We had wonderful loving parents. So sorry the Quints didn’t get to experience that. Sad that Emma and Louis didn’t end up together. Being born only a few years later we grew up hearing and seeing pictures of the Quints all the time. They were so cute.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A must read

    Absolutely loved this book! I had heard about the Quintuplets and had a general understanding of their childhood BUT this book brought to light how sensationalized they were, how their childhood was stolen from them and how their parents mourned to be their parents again ❤

  • A compelling read.

    A compelling read. Although I knew about the Dion Quints and the controversy about how they were raised, the fight between the family and Dr. Dafoe and a little about their adult life, this book brought it all to life. It brings up how government makes decisions for some of it's citizens 'for their best interests' when in fact it is in the best interest of the government and those who can profit from it. It also brought up parallels with the 60's scoop.

    Thanks for your feedback!
