Then that phone call and...her memory splits in two.She was Trish, a housewife and mother of four.She was Pat, a successful travel writer and mother of three.She remembers living her life as both women, so very clearly.
Which memory is real - or are both just tricks of time and light?My Real Children is the story of both of Patricia Cowan's lives - each with its loves and losses, sorrows and triumphs, its possible consequences.

Review by SChant
Tiptree winner 2014The first chapter had me hooked, then the next 3 or 4 chapters were pretty dull and I started to wonder what all the fuss was about, but after that the intertwined stories pulled me in again. I enjoyed it immensely.
