Nicky Campbell, the Radio 5 Live and BBC1 Watchdog presenter, was adopted as a baby into a comfortable Protestant Scottish family. He always knew he was adopted, but didn't begin searching for his birth mother until he was in his thirties. When he found her, what she told him came as a shock. The clash of cultures, creed, and ideology between his parent's world and the world he grew up in couldn't be more striking. In this refreshingly candid book, he tells the story of his journey to find his parents, the dark secrets that have been revealed, and the journey he had to make after finding them.

One of the best books I have read about adoption and the resulting conflict for the adult adoptee between birth and adotpive families. A very moving book.
