Blue Eyed Son: The Story of an Adoption (book)


Nicky Campbell, the radio and TV presenter, was adopted by a Protestant Scottish family. Raised in a comfortable middle class home, his adoptive parents helped him to a good school, a good university and then onto a successful career in the media. He always knew he'd been adopted but it wasn't until he was in his thirties that he embarked on the hunt for his birth mother. When he found her, what she told him came as a shock. His natural father was an Irish Republican and his paternal grandfather had fought in the IRA. In this candid book he tells the story of his journey to find his parents, and the journey he has had to make since finding them. [1]
