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.
