Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: The astonishing real story of a daughter's search for her own past and the desperate mother who gave her up. Phyllis Whitsell was adopted at the age of four. She began looking for her birth mother as a young woman and although it was many years before she finally met her, their lives had crossed without their knowledge. She later used her job as a district nurse to secretly care for her, never revealing that she was her lost daughter. This is a daughter's personal account of the remarkable relationship that grew from abandonment into love, understanding and selfless care.
