Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Expanding on her previous titles (Blackbird; Still Waters), in which she related the traumatizing experiences of being adopted twice before reaching her teen years, Lauck begins her story a decade later. After years of therapy, Buddhist practice, her brother's suicide, two failed marriages and motherhood, she rejects her old vision of comparing the past to "radioactive waste" that must be buried. Despite early indifference to finding her birth mother, Lauck comes to see the woman as key to releasing deep pain, sadness, and rage. Lauck's spare narrative concentrates on emotion, occasionally expanded with clinical explanations of mother-child bonding and Buddhist perspectives on inner growth. But she shines when she allows the abandoned child to peek out. Lauck searches out her birth mother and finds her deceased birth father's family, completes the circle, then moves on. People who have struggled for a sense of belonging or with anger and grief will find wisdom, comfort, and guidance in Lauck's discoveries. (Mar.)

    Heroic Story of An Adopted Child's Search for her Mother

    In language stunning in its ability to describe a person, scene, and emotion in few words, Jennifer Lauck takes us into her world. The world of a baby wrested from its mother at birth, a child whose adoptive parents both die before she is ten years old, and a journalist, mother, and author who is forced to deal with feelings she doesn't understand until she comes to terms with her own adoption. This is more than just Jennifer's story. It is a story for anyone who has ever felt unloved or out of place in this world and has looked inside themselves for healing.
    Jennifer is a master storyteller. I applaud her courage in sharing her mythic and spiritual journey to reunite with the Mother she never met but always knew at some deeper sensory level.

    Recommended, if you liked Blackbird, you'll like this too!

    I enjoyed reading how Jennifer grew in her healing of the events in her childhood. I identified with her in Blackbird, and I identified with her in Found. She found the way to heal. Good read.
