From the Publisher:
Kit Philipson has always felt like a stranger in his family. Having grown up as the much-loved child of a professional family in Glasgow, Scotland, he learned that he was adopted, and that his birth name was Novello. Soon vague memories begin to surface: his nursery, pictures on the wall, the smell of his birth mother when she?d been cooking. And sometimes there are more disturbing memories?of strangers taking him by the hand and leading him away from the only family he had ever known. A search of old newspaper files reveals that a three-year-old boy was abducted from his parents? holiday hotel in Sicily in 1989. Now, twenty years later, the young man known as Kit sets out to rediscover his past?but his probing inquiries may unearth secrets that dare never be revealed.

Barnard brilliantly chips away at a carefully constructed family facade in a deeply moving story about the power of maternal love?and the danger of obsession.

Annotation:
Lying on her deathbed, Kit's mother reveals to him that he is adopted and that his biological family lives in Leeds, England. Kit travels from Glasgow to reunite with his long-lost parents, but his reunion is not the joyous occasion that he expects. What secret do these people have hidden? Why was he kidnapped as a three-year-old? And what connection is there between his adoptive parents and his natural ones? Told with expert suspense and well-crafted mystery, A STRANGER IN THE FAMILY is also a powerful story of self-discovery by British writer Robert Barnard.
