This is based on a true story. The Children's Home and Ms. Tann were real. Cecile & Millie are fictional but that's not to say that their story isn't real. This woman impacted many, many lives and a lot of them not for the better. The story is good as are the characters. There is mystery, romance and lots of angst. If you like historical fiction and true crime then I think you will enjoy this book.
I received a copy of this book from Netgalley & the publisher and voluntarily chose to review it. ( )

What I think you should know:

The Pink Bonnet is the second book in the True Colors series, however it can be read as a stand alone because each book features a different true crime. This book contains a fictionalized tale about the dark side of adoption in the early 1930’s. It includes a real woman, Georgia Tann who an adoption in Memphis, Tennessee from 1924 to 1950.

What I wish I would have known:

Just how very heartbreaking this book is. If you have ever loved a child you may find yourself wondering what you would do if you were in the shoes of Cecile . This book contains children who have been taken from their families, often times kidnapped or taken under false circumstances.

Who I loved the most:
Cecile Dowd is such a strong mama, she was willing to go to the end of the earth to try to get back her baby. While I grew to love Perry Vance my heart ached for RD. Griggs and his wife. I also enjoyed how Liz Tolsma, the author, showed the darker side of politics and how far it reached.

Who will love this book( Just to name a few):
Fans of True Crime
Fans of Historical Fiction
Fans of Suspense

I received a complimentary copy for this book from Celebrate Lit, this in no way influenced my review. All opinions are my own. ( )

The Pink Bonnet by Liz Tolsma continues the true crime series that really exemplifies that fact is stranger than fiction. In the second book of the True Colors series, Tolsma presents a very personal look at the corruption and pure evil that dominated the adoption scene in Memphis from the 1920s right up to the 1950s. The infamous Georgia Tann and her Tennessee Children’s Home Society are at the center of the novel. Greed and power are two motivators for those who stole and sold children. But it is an unrelenting love that wins the day in this fictional account. Tolmsa uses historical touches — dress, setting, culture — to set the stage of this mystery/suspense set in the 1930s. A child is stolen, and mother Cecile Dowd never gives up on finding her daughter. Swept into the drama is lawyer and assistant to Tann, Percy Vance. The two are great complimentary characters — dogged in determination and set on seeing that evil does not win. While The Pink Bonnet is pure fiction, it is a good representation of the subject matter. I had heard of Georgia Tann, but did not truly know how she preyed on the desperate and vulnerable, with seemingly no opposition. While primarily a mystery/suspense novel, this quick read also features a budding romance — it really offers something for everyone.

For a glimpse into an historical true crime story, The Pink Bonnet is a good choice and receives a recommended rating from me.

Recommended.

Audience: adults.

If you’ve read Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate, you are aware of Georgia Tann and the Tennessee Children’s Home Society historic scandal. Liz Tolsma’s The Pink Bonnet, the second True Colors novel, again revisits this tragic history, but from the perspective of a mother in search of her child.

Cecile Dowd is a young widow, and though she loves her Millie Mae very much, most days it is a struggle to provide for her. After a neighbor allows Millie Mae to be taken by Tann, Cecile has no choice but to find her. Her desperate search leads to startling, heartbreaking revelations, especially when Tann’s lawyer Percy Vance sees the truth.

A solid historical story with a bit of romance, The Pink Bonnet has great moments of suspense. I enjoyed reading it and look forward to more from the True Colors series.

I received a complimentary copy of this book and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own. ( )

If you are looking for a feel good happily ever after book, this is the wrong book. What you will find is a story based on a true crime by a sinister, heartless and ruthless woman named Georgia Tann. I could not dislike a person more than this horrible woman. I was angry throughout the book that innocent children and parents were victimized by a woman who wanted nothing but power and money.

Cecile was raising her young girl alone since her husband passed away. She struggled with bills, but her child was well taken care of. I loved her devotion to her child Millie and how much love she showed her. When a series of events take place, Cecile finds her daughter taken away from her home and put up for adoption. I still can't understand why her neighbor didn't seem to think it was suspicious that Millie was being taken away knowing how much Cecile loved her. I think the neighbor was led to believe that the child was in danger and not being taken care of properly.

I won't go into a lot of the story because it needs to be read so readers can feel the agony that Cecile went through trying to find her daughter. I will say that many children fell through the cracks due to Georgia Tann and not all were returned to the rightful parents. I can't imagine what torture it would be to know your child had been taken and you had no idea where they were.

The author has written a very emotional story that captivated my full attention. I could not put it down and read it in a few hours. The details are painful to read at times and you can feel the adrenaline rush as the search for Millie starts to escalate. Cecile finds someone to help her and their lives are put in danger as they get closer to the truth. It is an intense read that will have you on the edge of your seat. Get ready for a powerful story written with depth, emotion and an ending that won't be forgotten.

I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion. ( )
