Join Adrian on his journey from easy-going teenager through to manhood, as he searches for his birth mother. Where is she? Why did she abandon him? Adrian's Journey begins with scenes in England from his comfortable family life and his activities with his fellow first year university students. But the focus moves inexorably to the twists and turns of Adrian's quest as he grapples with life's complexity, juggling its demands, and with his experiences in colourful and troubled Beirut.

Adrian's Journey is not only a tale of a young man trying to discover the identity of his biological mother; it is also a reflection of the human condition, and of how people are shaped by their experiences in life. Readers may identify with the questions asked and the decisions made, yet the story is far from predictable in its course and outcome. Compelling yet familiar, Adrian's Journey will hold the reader's interest until the very last page.

About the Author

Alison Cooper started writing fiction at the age of 62, after a long career in academic research administration. Her final position before retirement was at the Leverhulme Trust where she worked for thirteen years. Her first novel, The Rapallo Legacy, was published in November 2009.
Adrian's Journey is a story based loosely on the family circumstances of a friend, adapted and altered for the actions in the novel.
Alison has a degree in Chinese and French, a working knowledge of Italian, and enough German and Spanish to read essential notices. In 1977-78 she spent nine months as a student in Beijing. Now living in London and Italy, she enjoys classical music and jazz, (in the past she played the timpani, the viola, and the piano, and even conducted a little), collecting Chinese stamps, ballroom and Latin dancing, and gardening, about which she knows very little.
