Summary
I was fourteen when my Mother said that she needed to speak to me. And then she told me - just like that. I was adopted. And what I felt was not shock or grief but the most enormous sense of relief. Growing up as the only child of strict, God-fearing parents, Lucilla has always felt her difference.
