Summary
There are three narrative strands to Gaby Naher's memoir: one which tells the story of how she was lovingly raised by her adoptive father, George. The second tells the story of how George was badly fathered: his experiences as an all but abandoned child a - they are why he put such effort into making sure his 'special' girls (his two adopted daughters) felt loved and wanted. The third story that winds its way through the book is Gaby's search for her biological father. From a small village in the Swiss Alps, to a landmark Dublin hotel, to the sumptuous and legendary Belvedere, an oasis of European sophistication and charm in the middle of seedy Kings Cross, Gaby Maher traces her adoptive parents' history. She also travels to Canada where she meets her birth father and her French-Canadian relatives and for the first time in her life feels she belongs. It is not till she returns to Australia that she learns the terrible truth about her father.
