The Truth About My Fathers : Though she may have entered the world alone, Gaby Naher was destined to know the most genuine, heartfelt fathering a girl could hope for - through her adoptive father, her beloved Daddo. Yet still she had never seen her features reflected in another's face, never felt truly comfortable in her own skin. And so in her twenties she set out to find her 'other' father. What she didn't know at the time was that her journey would end in unspeakable tragedy - or how that tragedy bound her destiny even more closely to that of her adoptive father. From a small village in the Emmental in Switzerland, to post-Civil War Dublin, to the sumptuous and legendary Belvedere Hotel, an oasis of European sophistication and charm in the middle of Sydney's Kings Cross, Gaby Naher traces her adoptive father's rich history. In Canada she is embraced by her enigmatic and glamorous biological father and his brothers - and at the same time is reminded of the unique and irreplaceable bond with her adoptive father.
