Book of fiction based on true events is explosive. Beulah George "Georgia" Tann took up 5000 children from the poor, unwed mothers, divorced woman, and sold them for profit, some as low as $7 and some as much as $5000 between 1920 - 1950 when she died before being arrested. She destroyed or falsified the children's records so there isn't a paper trail, only DNA testing might find them their birth families. It is a terrible story of corruption where she was able to get help from a Judge in Tennessee. A must read!
