Review

Julie Roberts and Marc Wolfe are both searching for their birth mothers, although for slightly different reasons.

Julie already knows her teenage mum became pregnant by a married man and is desperately worried that her birth ruined the rest of her mother’s life. “I just want to tell her she shouldn’t feel guilty about what happened and I hope she’s had a lovely life with her own family,” Julie says with remarkable selflessness.

Marc is hoping to discover that his birth mother didn’t simply reject him but had no choice about giving him up for adoption. As she insisted that he went to a Jewish family, he’s hopeful she did care.
