Mary was just seven-weeks-old when she was adopted by James and Carol Rowland following her birth in 1949 in the grim and austere surroundings of a home for young unmarried mothers which was governed by Nuns. Mary grew up living happily within the Rowland family home, accepting that she had been adopted and never seeking to know more about the full circumstances surrounding her being given away by her birth mother, Ruth. Now twenty-eight years on and as a single mother raising a daughter of her own, Mary begins to question those long forgotten and still unresolved questions about her own birth, her mother, and as to why she was abandoned at such a young age. The appalling detail of violence and abuse experienced by Ruth throughout her early life as a young Jewish girl transported to the death camp at Birkenau, and again she struggled to make a life for herself after the war - coupled with the shocking detail of her pregnancy will dramatically challenge and change the two women's lives forever.
