About this title

Synopsis:

Kit Philipson has always felt like a stranger in his family. Having grown up as the much-loved child of a professional family in Glasgow, Scotland, he learned that he was adopted, and that his birth name was Novello. Soon vague memories begin to surface: his nursery, pictures on the wall, the smell of his birth mother when she'd been cooking. And sometimes there are more disturbing memories of strangers taking him by the hand and leading him away from the only family he had ever known. A search of old newspaper files reveals that a three-year-old boy was abducted from his parents' holiday hotel in Sicily in 1989. Now, twenty years later, the young man known as Kit sets out to rediscover his past but his probing inquiries may unearth secrets that dare never be revealed. Barnard brilliantly chips away at a carefully constructed family facade in a deeply moving story about the power of maternal love and the danger of obsession.
