Strays and Relations : The Five Hours and Four Decades of Dizzy Greenfield Paperback / softback


Strays and Relations follows the story of Dizzy, whose search for her birth parents is sad, humorous, and in parts bizarre.

Dizzy learns that she began life as a surviving twin, then was fostered until a permanent home was found.

Dizzy begins her search for her original identity. Why was she given up for adoption in the 1960s? Following a tenuous lead, she travels to Ireland with her best friend Sugar, but the trail takes a misleading turn.

It ends in what they mistakenly believe is Dizzy's mother's grave.

Dizzy falls in love with Will, a blacksmith. But something is missing. Dizzy's life changes when her birth father Tommy makes contact using a private detective.

He reveals that her birth mother is alive and married to a man called Vernon.

Now the bigger, trickier task lies ahead: working out how to fit the disparate bits of her life together.

This is a book which will both amuse and touch readers' hearts. Strays and Relations manages sensitive subject matter with engaging wit and sharply-observed dialogue, and includes vivid descriptions of some rather unusual animals and people.

It will appeal to readers who have encountered a recycled animal or family.
