Thirty years later, out of the blue, Homes was contacted by a lawyer on behalf of her birth mother and they began to correspond; her biological father contacted her soon after. These two individuals and their effect on the adult Homes are strange and unexpected and the story spirals into something utterly raw and hilarious, heartbreaking and absurd. Along the way, Homes describes the clash between her childhood fantasies of her birth parents and the disappointing reality.

Powerful, moving and thought provoking
Incredibly, personal account of a journey back in time to the events that lead to the author's conception. Tracing the threads behind the reason for her existence. Often painful, deeply moving, her biological mother's years of hurt, abandonment and broken promises travel in time to kick the author in her stomach. There follows emotional upheaval, uncertainty, expectations and then the dismal realisation that nothing has indeed changed. The daughter suffers at her father's hands just as her mother had before her.
A book for everyone who questions their existence and why and where genetic and personality comes from!
