16 May 2024

Finding Margaret is the moving story of journalist and broadcaster Andrew Pierce’s search for his birth mother.

As he was approaching his fifties, Pierce decided that it was finally time to track down his birth mother. He knew he had lived in a Roman Catholic orphanage in Cheltenham for more than two years and was adopted when he was three years old, by a family who loved and nurtured him. As he became more successful as a journalist, and despite the guilt he felt that he was betraying the mum and dad he loved very much who adopted him, Pierce began to tentatively search for his birth mother, only to find that she had done her very best to ensure he would never find her.

When he did manage to meet her, the mystery only deepened, leading him to Ireland in search of a man who may or may not have been his father. Back in Cheltenham, he realises the extent of the mistreatment he suffered at the orphanage and attempts to get to know the woman who gave him away as a very small child.

This book is a heart-warming page turner that takes the reader on an extraordinary journey. Full of amusing and eye-catching anecdotes, at its heart lies the inspirational story of a man’s long search for his birth mother and what happened when he finally found her.
