Описание

The Foundling tells the incredible and inspiring true story of Paul Fronczak, a man who recently discovered via a DNA test that he was not who he thought he was-and set out to solve two fifty-year-old mysteries at once. Along the way he upturned the genealogy industry, unearthed his family's deepest secrets, and broke open the second longest cold-case in US history, all in a desperate bid to find out who he really is.

In 1964, a woman pretending to be a nurse kidnapped an infant boy named Paul Fronczak from a Chicago hospital.

Two years later, police found a boy abandoned outside a variety store in New Jersey. The FBI tracked down Dora Fronczak, the kidnapped infant's mother, and she identified the abandoned boy as her son. The family spent the next fifty years believing they were whole again-but Paul was always unsure about his true identity.

Then, four years ago-spurred on by the birth of his first child, Emma Faith-Paul took a DNA test. The test revealed definitively that he was not Paul Fronczak. From that moment on, Paul has been on a tireless mission to find the man whose life he's been living-and to discover who abandoned him, and why.

This is the story of Paul's heart-wrenching and tortuous journey to solve both mysteries and finally learn the truth about his identity.

The Foundling is a touching and inspiring story about a child lost and faith found, about the permanence of families and the bloodlines that define you, and about the emotional toll of both losing your identity and rediscovering who you truly are.

    This was an interesting story. In all honesty, I did not love the narrator.

    It was a good story. I enjoyed listening to it.
  • (3/5)
    A lot of character jumping. It could get confusing. Exciting though to follow his journey towards finding his biological family, helping others find theirs, and all the loopholes he had to jump through along the way. Not my typical book, but I wasn't disappointed. I mainly started getting characters and families mixed up.

    This was exceptional…. I may have to give it a second go. I do wish closure for everyone in the book ….

    Fantastic book about an incredibly unusual story. Very well written and keeps you gripped from start to finish.

    The story itself is mesmerising what that poor man went through. Its a good read. The only reason i gave 3 stars because it's so long, the book could have been a whole lot shorter without ruining the story. Alot of DNA stuff that is important to his journey but quite irrelevant to the reader, i was getting a bit bored.

    Overly long - this could have been cut by two thirds. Lots of repetition and too much unnecessary nitpicky detail. There was a lot of whining I thought, a real 'poor me' element that became increasingly grating. Really liked the reader, nice tone and calm, non overly dramatic delivery.

    Incredible story incredibly written. We all can identify with feeling like an outsider at least once without knowing why. This story effectively communicates the diverse issues and emotions involved with a search of self discovery. What a brave journey.

    This was a spell binding book ,but also sad that God was not a part of his life . With God he could have had a happier life while he was searching for his biological family . The empty spot in his life was doing all this on his own without God to fill that void . I pray he finds that peace that only come from giving his life to the Lord Jesus Christ.

    Awesome book. I truly enjoyed this one. Worth every second!
  • (3/5)
    I enjoyed the story but was put off by the narrator whose voice I found very unexpressive and irritating. It’s a shame that Paul Fronzak himself did not continue reading after the Prologue because he has a lovely voice! I kept listening because I wanted to know what happened.

    The end I guess, the book is very long and drawn out many times I just wished for the end

    This deserved to be a long article not a book. He goes on and on and on and on about each little point. Something that could be described in 20 words takes 2000 instead. The man needs therapy. I hope he gets it. It's full of poor me. There's a lot of tragedy in the world. My mother's parents and two of three sisters were murdered in WW2. Amazingly she treasured her children and grandchildren and even had a great sense of humor. By the end of the book I really disliked this man and his endless self-pity.
