I believe the book you are looking for is Daybreak...except the disease is Cystic Fibrosis and the children switched at birth were boys. Very good book with interesting twists!
Hope this helps!

Could someone please help me? I was reading a Belva Plain novel and left it on a plane and need to buy another to finish it. I have no clue what the title is. It is Not a new one... Robb is the key subject and his wife Ellen? He becomes obsessed with a new home, money and wealth. They have a son who is autistic? (or retarded) and a daughter who Robb adores. He is an attorney. They are growing apart as he goes up in the corporate world..Please help me with the name of this book... THANKS SO MUCH. Buni

PLEASE MAKE DAYBREAK INTO A MOVIE. HOLLYWOOD WOULD SERVE A MAJOR PURPOSE BY PRODUCING SUCH A MEANINGFUL MOVIE, ESPECIALLY DURING THESE TRYING TIMES IN OUR WORLD. LET'S TRY TO MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE. THANK YOU, BELVA PLAIN, FOR WRITING AS YOU DO AND FOR ADDING GOODNESS TO OUR WORLD, WITH YOUR MEANINGFUL, HUMANLY TOUCHING NOVELS. I HAVE ENJOYED READING YOUR NOVELS FOR MANY YEARS AND HOPE TO CONTINUE ENJOYING AND LEARNING FROM THEM FOR A LONG TIME TO COME.

Well Ladies, it looks like we're going to have to bite the bullet and e-mail Belva Plain herself and see if she'll give us any hints :) I'll send check her website for a "Contact me" spot and let you know what I find - if you want to do the same, please do!

You know I thought I was getting senile or something...Yes, I reread the beginning and the end several times but stillI just didn't get what Leo's relationship to Adam was...The Snows were I assume Leo and the woman he married...Why did the author tell the story of "Arthur" the dog -first from the point of view from Adam's father, then from Leo?..You know, I didn't even know it was Texas -until I read the book review...Feel like writing to Belva Plain to sort out mystery
