As a big fan of the ITV series, I had high hopes for this book - and I wasn't disappointed. The stories are so touching, and so motivating. It's heartbreaking what some of the families have had to go through - for example, Jeannie who has been searching for her brother her whole life, only to eventually find out that he'd died in an accident. I was also really touched by Kirsty's story - you can really feel the pain she's in as she looks at her adopted son and thinks of what might have been if she hadn't given him up. My favourite story was that of Kathleen and Jennifer, the reunited twins - I couldn't believe they'd literally been living down the road from each other their whole lives! I saw them on ITV a few weeks ago, too, talking about what it was like to have found one another - it's so lovely that they're good friends now, and that they've been able to build a relationship late on in life. For anyone looking for inspiring stories which will break your heart but ultimately make you feel good about the unbreakable bond between families and the power of love, then this book is for you.
