Nathalie and David, the two main characters, each delivered by a different mother, have been lovingly raised by their adoptive parents. As they reach adulthood, with their own partners and family to raise, a gnawing, persistent thought starts to take shape in Nathalie's mind. Her feelings influence her brother David too and the search for their respective biological families begins.
This comes almost as a surprise to their partners and adoptive parents too, to whom they've have always vowed a disinterest about their origins, thinking that their present, in itself quite serene and fulfilling, was all that mattered.
An emotional roller coaster ensues, involving everybody. Also, will Nathalie and David find an answer to their craving desire TO KNOW and will they eventually understand/accept it? Buy this lovely piece of fiction, which in any case I'm sure reflects many real stories out there, and find out.
This is the 4th book I read by J. Trollope and, as usual, I've liked it very, very much. The story is delivered with compassion and understanding, the narrative makes it a page-turner.
