Blue-Eyed Son: The Story of an Adoption Summary
`Blue-Eyed Son is a personal history, but its themes - family, self-identity and filial love - are universal' Frances Hardy, Daily Mail Raised in a comfortable middle-class home, Nicky Campbell's Scottish Protestant family cared and nurtured him as their own, while remaining open about the fact he'd been adopted. His father - an ex-army man - and his mother helped him to a good school and a good university. Nicky rarely thought of his birth parents, until a combination of an imploding marriage and a chance meeting with a private detective led him to track his mother down. Nicky Campbell brilliantly recalls their reunion and tentative steps towards a relationship, evoking all the complex and deep-seated emotions that being reunited elicited in each of them. But as they talked it became clear that there was more to Nicky's background than he expected. . . In this emotionally gripping and refreshingly honest memoir, Nicky Campbell describes the many sides of a family's dark history, and how it feels to find out where you come from.
