“Fessler’s haunting group portrait of women who surrendered their children for adoption in the 1950s and ’60s juxtaposes their voices with stock archival images from an era when wrenching human drama was buried beneath airbrushed images of family and sexuality.” –The Washington Post

“Precise, daunting, and also allusive, this story recalls those bad old days … when ignorance, silence, and repression were the preferred social strategies.… Decidedly anti-nostalgic …heart-wrenching.” –PopMatters

“Quietly devastating” –Washington City Paper
