Blood and Water: An Anglo-Iranian Love Story by Katharine Quarmby

Blood and Water: An Anglo-Iranian Love Story

by Katharine Quarmby

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
1 Hr.11 Min.


In this poignant book, the writer and investigative journalist Katharine Quarmby describes the 20-year search for her Iranian birth father and her own adoption history. She links this narrative to the wider story that she uncovered during her search - of the many missing Iranian military fathers, who disappeared after the Iranian Revolution, but who are still sought by so many Iranian love-children in Britain today. Her narrative is a meditation on the importance of both birth and adoptive families - and a challenge to those who would set aside the importance of race as a factor in adoption. She describes what it feels like to search and discover your roots, in a moving story that takes her to Iran undercover, on a secret visit - a visit that changes her forever. The love of the parents who raised her gave her the courage to find her birth father. This is her tribute to both her families.
