The brave and moving memoir by Long Lost Family presenter and Radio 5 breakfast show host Nicky Campbell reveals how the simple unconditional love of Maxwell, his Labrador, turned his life around and helped him come to terms with his difficult journey as an adopted child.

"Campbell traces the faultlines in his own life all the way back to his childhood and examines how they splayed him apart."

In Campbell’s case, the love and stalwart support of his wife Tina and four daughters have sustained him. The unconditional adoration of Maxwell the Labrador is a daily blessing, too.

There’s a strong sense throughout this book, though, that his battle has not yet been won.
