Webbed Toes: A Birth Mother's Life Story

ByWinifred Latham

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
In Webbed Toes: A Birth Mother’s Story, Winifred Latham takes readers on the journey of her life, from growing up in small town Washington, North Carolina, to earning a nursing degree from the Medical College of Virginia in Richmond, to locales both stateside and international during her career as a United States Air Force nurse during the Vietnam War era. This candid memoir shares Latham’s story as a young woman who was date-raped before finishing nursing school in the late 1950s and, finding herself pregnant, her agonizing decision to give the baby up for adoption. Woven throughout the narrative is her struggle to maintain the secret that she carried with her for 35 years. Latham’s story goes full circle when she receives a letter out of the blue from a woman who knows about the child she thought she would never see again.
