About this title


Did you know that an astonishing sixty per cent of Americans have a personal connection to adoption? That means that the majority of your audience knows someone who has been adopted, are adopted themselves, or has relinquished a child to adoption. Behind the statistics are the painful, joyful real life stories of adoption...and none could be told more vividly and unflinchingly than Zara Phillips' new memoir, Chasing Away the Shadows, An Adoptee's Journey Into Motherhood. Zara was adopted as an infant into a comfortable upper middle class home in the London suburbs. Yet she grew up with a painful sense of unbelonging...always scanning the crowds for that face that looked just like hers. Gifted with talent and beauty, Zara became a musician and rock singer. But her cool facade could not disguise her inner turmoil, and her success could not keep her from self destructing. Then one day Zara decided to look for her birth parents. Chasing Away the Shadows chronicles her journey of self discovery, from search to reunion; culminating in the joy of Zara's own motherhood. It reads like a good novel; suspenseful, thrilling, inspiring.

From the Publisher:

This book would be suitable for anyone whose lives have been touched by adoption but would be very helpful to adoptees contemplating Parenthood.
