THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER
'What an extraordinary story... very moving indeed' Vanessa Feltz, Radio 2
The astonishing true story of a daughter's search for her own past and the desperate mother who gave her up.
Phyllis Whitsell began the search for her birth mother as a young woman, and although it was many years before she finally met her, their lives had crossed on the journey without their knowledge.
This is a daughter's personal account of the remarkable relationship that grew from abandonment into love, understanding and selfless care.
'I lit the candle and prayed for my birth mother, asking God to take care of her. Even at such a young age, I found it difficult to understand, but I always feared that she was in danger and needed my prayers.
'It was the only thing at the time that I could do for her. I feared that she might be coming to some harm and that she was not happy, but I was helpless and had nobody to talk to about my feelings.'
Phyllis' story continues with A Song for Bridget - also available now.
