5.0 out of 5 stars A totally engaging story, 30 July 2013
This review is from: Blood and Water: An Anglo-Iranian Love Story (Kindle Single) (Kindle Edition)
This is a totally engaging true story. Katharine is very clear-thinking about her situation. She has been happy in and loved by her adoptive family and yet she always felt a strong urge to meet her birth father. Her story is perhaps unusual in that her birth father did not want her to be adopted. In fact, he tried to get the Adoption Society and her birth mother to allow him to take her back with him to his own country of Iran. They refused.

It was not until she herself was a mother that Katharine met her birth father. This was the beginning of a really meaningful relationship. The accounts of their first and subsequent meetings are beautifully written. Their second meeting took place in Iran and the reader is transported with Katharine into a very different world - one that she might have grown up in.

Katharine has also met her birth mother.

This true story is very inspiring and full of reflection. I feel enriched by having read it. I recommend it to anybody, not just people involved in adoption. It is for anybody who is interested in where we come from and where we think we belong.
