‘What’s the good of digging up the past? You never know what you might find.’
London, 1970: Returning to England after four years in Geneva, Bobbie Chadwick has no idea who she is. A new decade is dawning and bringing with it independence and the freedom to be whomever she chooses. But haunted by an unknown past, Bobbie finds herself listless, jobless, and falling out of love.
Things only get more confusing when her adoptive father dies leaving a wake of secrets behind him. But when she finds her birth certificate and a few old diaries, Bobbie starts a search thirty years in the making. Looking for a sense of belonging, Bobbie delves into her childhood memories of WWII and uncovers a wartime secret that will change her life forever.
War Baby was first published in 1991.
