In 1974 Hannah Pool was adopted from an orphanage in Eritrea and brought to England by her white adoptive father. She grew up unable to imagine what it must be like to look into the eyes of a blood relative until one day a letter arrived from a brother she never knew she had. Not knowing what to do with the letter, Hannah hid it away.
Guardian Bookshop Notes:
A funny, personal memoir that tackles big ideas, and a heartfelt investigation into the identity and the effects of adoption. A story of one life, two families and two very different cultures.
