This book is a very honest portrayal of women on the three sides of the adoption triangle. There’s the woman who gives up her baby without being allowed to see or hold it, the woman who becomes the child’s mother, and the daughter who searches for her birth mother. Anyone would find it hard not to empathise with such a moving depiction of how women were treated in our society during the 1950’s and later. Knowing that it’s Felicity’s true story gives the social history an extra edge.

she had another mother too.”
