Relative Strangers: A history of adoption and a tale of triplets Summary
Relative Strangers is a history of adoption in Britain, and the true-life tale of the seventy-one-year-old Hodder triplets. The book tells the unique and moving story of how the triplets, adopted as babies in 1932, were reunited in June 2001 - the first time the three of them had been together since their birth. Their life stories and how they found each other again are interspersed with the story of adoption, which began as a legal phenomenon in the UK in 1926. The book also describes the twenty-five-year legal battle fought by NORCAP (the National Organisation for the Counselling of Children and Parents) to change the adoption laws, which helped to bring the triplets, and other adoptees, together again. Hunter Davies is one of Britain's most sympathetic and thoughtful interviewers, and the author of over thirty books. He has interviewed the triplets at length and has had access through NORCAP to other case histories, which are themselves profoundly affecting
