This episode of Big Blend Radio’s “Writer’s Wednesday” Show with Books Forward features Julie Ryan McGue who discusses her debut memoir, “Twice a Daughter: A Search for Identity, Family & Belonging.”

Julie McGue is adopted. And she is also a twin. But because their adoption was closed, she and her sister lack both a health history and the names of their birth parents — which becomes pertinent for Julie when, at 48 years old, she finds herself facing several serious health issues. McGue’s poignant and hopeful memoir chronicles the complex search for her uncharted family history.

Featured music is “Where the Rain Falls” by Kimia Penton.
