Description

Originally published in 1993, this classic piece of literature on adoption has revolutionised the way people think about adopted children.


Nancy Verrier examines the life-long consequences of the 'primal wound' - the wound that is caused when a child is separated from its mother - for adopted people. Her argument is supported by thorough research in pre- and perinatal psychology, attachment, bonding and the effects of loss.
