Without a Map, by Meredith Hall

In 1965, when Meredith Hall became pregnant and gave her child up for adoption, she was expelled from school, and her parents and neighbors in her small New Hampshire town shunned her.  Powerful and unflinchingly honest, this memoir recounts the life journeys through which she came to terms with those early losses, as well as her reunion with her son years later.  While that reunion is more complicated than a fairytale ending, this story is ultimately full of both hope and forgiveness.
