Blue Eyed Son Book Description:

From the presenter of ITV1's Long Lost Family and the bestselling author of One of the Family, comes a moving and honest book about Nicky Campbell's own search for his birth parents. 'Blue-Eyed Son is a personal history, but its themes - family, self-identity and filial love – are universal' – Daily Mail Raised in a comfortable middle-class home, Nicky Campbell's Scottish Protestant family cared for and nurtured him as their own, while remaining open about the fact that he'd been adopted. His father – an ex-army man – and his mother helped him to a good school and a good university. Nicky rarely thought of his birth parents, until a combination of an imploding marriage and a chance meeting with a private detective led him to track down his birth mother. Nicky Campbell brilliantly recalls their reunion and tentative steps towards a relationship, evoking all the complex and deep-seated emotions that being reunited elicited in each of them. But it soon became clear that there was more to Nicky's background than he expected. In this emotionally gripping and refreshingly honest memoir, Nicky Campbell describes the many sides of a family's dark history, and how it feels to find out where you come from. 'A deeply personal book. A fascinating story and a wonderful read' – Michael Parkinson 'An extraordinary story' – Independent
