Customer Review

on 23 January 2005
Sue Elliott's odyssey to discover her birth mother, leads her into much more than she bargained for. But this is not just a personal and emotional journey, Sue's story is skilfully interwoven with a fascinating and at times disturbing social history of adoption, and with the personal testimonies of many women who had to give up their babies for adoption against their will. It's hard to stay dry-eyed as the enormity of the impact on so many lives - the birth mothers, the adoptee parents and the adopted children - is explored with great sensitivity and understanding. The moving and colourful story of Sue's own adoption and reunion with her birth mother is told with frankness, warmth and humour. It will resonate with anyone involved in adoption and surprise others with aspects of adoption to which most of us have given little thought.
