Brother and Sister by Joanna Trollope

In Brother and Sister, Nathalie and David grow up as adopted siblings from different mothers. Although now in her thirties and married, Nathalie suddenly decides she has to find her birth mother. David goes along with the idea and tries to find his own mother. Their search for their past and identity threatens to upset their present relationships with their spouses, children, and adoptive parents. Those who fear potential harm from this new information strike out in attempts to protect their own psyches. Joanna Trollope's novel explores all these questions of identity, love, and relationships. Brother and Sister has received mixed reviews. The Telegraph says, "Trollope is, as ever, a slick and stylish writer with a good ear for dialogue, and she is brilliantly perceptive about the little things that get on people's nerves."
