The Girls Who Went Away: The Hidden History of Women Who Surrendered Children for Adoption in the Decades Before Roe v. Wade
by Ann Fessler

I have read this book and it brought back memories of what happened to me.  My son was born in 1981 and I wasn't sent away but the coercive tactics were similar to what happened to the mothers in the book.  Sadly forced / coerced adoptions still happen today.
