Summary
Nathalie has always known that she and her brother David were adopted. She has never desired to have any contact with her mother. After she participates in a research project studying adoption, she completely changes her mind and desperately wants to meet her mother. She insists David contact his mother, as well. Both of their mothers are surprisingly easy to track down, but the consequences of the meetings are often painful, unexpected, and very far-reaching.
Critique
A serious and thoughtful book. Trollope examines the interior lives of her characters with a microscopic eye. Gracefully written. Highly recommend.
