Review by: KM
This autobiography left an indelible mark on me. Takes the reader
through Scotland and Nigeria in a lyrical, fascinating way as the author
seeks out her birth parents. I liked having my American perspective
shifted by seeing issues like race and culture through the eyes of
someone from another country. Also, the juxtaposition of two very
different climes and cultures was intriguing. Her writing style along
with her quest kept me enthralled as if I were reading a mystery novel.
Lastly, it has a lot of heart.
