Summary
An exquisitely written mystery about a man who discovers he had been abducted as a baby. The young man who has known himself only as Kit sets out to rediscover his past, the story of two three-year-old boys torn from their mothers in very different circumstances. Kit's probing inquiries bring surprises--and also unearth dangerous secrets
Summary
Kit Philipson has always felt like stranger in his family. An only child in Glasgow, Scotland, his mother was a teacher; his father, a journalist, escaped from Nazi Germany at the age of three on one of the 1939 Kindertransports. On her deathbed, Kit's mother tells him he was adopted and his birth name was Novello. A search of old newspaper files reveals that a three-year-old boy named Peter Novello was abducted from his parents' holiday hotel in Sicily in 1989. Now Kit sets out to rediscover his past, and may unearth dangerous secrets that dare never be revealed
