'intelligent and fascinating' -- Daily Telegraph 'her singular talent for memoir and reportage is integrated into her experiences as an adopted child! Her writing is witty, compelling and never mawkish.' -- Observer 'written with a sure touch! Adie has a natural understanding of what it is like to be unsure of your origins.' -- Sunday Telegraph 'a cracker of a subject ... (Adie) writes with an engaging, forthright immediacy... succeeds in the important sense that it makes what had previously seemed an act of unimaginable heartlessness a little easier to understand.' -- New Statesman 'thoughtful, heart-rending but also heartwarming... one of the strengths of this book is the way Adie slowly establishes how the incidentals of an individual's identity can become desperately important when you simply don't know the real answers.' -- Evening Standard 20050919 PRAISE FOR KATE ADIE'S PREVIOUS BOOKS 20050919 'An exceptional account by a remarkable woman' -- Michael Parkinson on THE KINDNESS OF STRANGERS 20050919 'The paciest and most entertaining history book to come my way' -- Ian McIntyre, The Times on CORSETS TO CAMOUFLAGE 20050919 'Sharp, witty and full of insights into the BBC and the sometimes crazed world of broadcasting' -- Daily Express on THE KINDNESS OF STRANGERS 20050919
