This AudioFile Earphones Award-winning recording of Alison Larkin's best-selling autobiographical novel about an adopted English woman who finds her birth parents and herself in the US is followed by an exclusive interview with the author.
"Author and narrator Alison Larkin lights up the earphones with her portrayal of Pippa Dunn, a young English woman who discovers that her birth parents are Americans. Pippa decides to go to America to meet them and ends up finding herself-and true love. Larkin's heartfelt narration conveys Pippa's mixed up feelings of confusion and guilt-as well as the story's humor. Larkin moves delightfully between the various British and American accents. With gentle humor, she pokes fun at both American and British cultures while making it clear she loves them both. This audio experience is like watching a great romantic comedy. Have the tissues ready at the end-the romance is that good!" (AudioFile Magazine - Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award)

M. Barrie.

I just loved listening to this book. I followed Pippa 's story spellbound, wanting to know what happens. I laughed a lot, felt sad at points and it took me on a journey of new thoughts on adoption, love & life. Thank you Alison Larkin.
