Holly is adopted. She is on a quest to find her identity and who she truely is. Her struggle. as the story shows is not the preserve of those looking for their birth mothers... but a journey many of take as we try and find out who we are...... If you lived through the eighties, especially if you were in a minority, marching against Thatchers Britain you may particularly enjoy this. It may not be great literature, & may never find itself added to the GCSE study list, BUT it is a very enjoyable, absorbing story, with my kind of hero's. The best audible book I have listened to for quite a while.
