Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0620678461, Paperback)

Life was going along merrily for Neil Lamble – he was happily married, he had two great kids and he thoroughly enjoyed the various sports activities he participated in. He looked forward to his fun-filled weekends at Scottburgh and he and his wife Di enjoyed an active social life with their many friends in Durban North and Scottburgh. Then life threw Neil one almighty curved ball. At the age of 54, Neil was stunned to learn that he and his sister, Robyn had been adopted as children. To say that this was a shock is an understatement of gross proportions. One of the fundamental building blocks of Neil’s existence had been shattered. The “mom” and “dad” that he had always thought were his biological parents were in fact not! Neil attacked this life-changing new information with characteristic tenacity as he sought to uncover long-hidden secrets from his past. His journey of discovery brought many new people into his life as the story unfolded. He too, impacted on the lives of many other people as a “new” uncle, nephew or brother. This book is the story of Neil and Robyn’s journeys of discovery and as they boldly ventured into this unchartered territory without a map. It is a journey that ends happily and successfully as they both eventually find the closure they were looking for when they set out in the aftermath of the dramatic revelations of 30 January 2011. This book is a “must-read” for anyone who was adopted as a child has adopted a child is thinking of adopting a child has an interest in adoption as a practice just wants to read a “feel-good” story of how things are not always what they seem in life.
