British journalist's search for birth parents. "This is the strangest and best family-search I have read since Diana Petre's THE SECRET ORCHARD OF ROGER ACKERLEY. It demonstrates the complexity and selfishness of the family and the survival of love and loyalty in the oddest circumstances. It is difficult to tell such a story. But Mr Leitch succeeds because he is always clear-sighted." - Paul Theroux in The Sunday TImes of London.
