A happy, stable, normal childhood and family life should have been mapped out for the three brothers… Adrian was born in Nairobi, Kenya, in September 1948, having two elder brothers—Neil, four; and Justin, two. Disputes, infidelities and lack of love by their parents caused the three brothers much pain and suffering. Against his wife’s wishes, their father moved the family to a small farm he bought in the Nyeri Region. They suffered two violent attacks by Mau Mau warriors, in which eight people and two dogs were massacred. The family moved to Mombasa, then their father left for England, never came back, forced his wife to send the three brothers to him in England and she abandoned them forever to their fate. Then their father rejected and abandoned them forever and they spent time in dreadful orphanages. Their terribly unhappy childhood affected each one in different ways. After a long separation from his brothers, Adrian was reunited with them on some occasions but lost both of them, Neil to suicide and Justin to a tragic heart attack. These losses nearly destroyed Adrian, but after many twists and turns, he managed to survive and overcome to a certain extent all the unhappiness and tragedy, and make a new, happy and serene life for himself with his own family.
This family drama covers important themes, such as lack of love, rejection and abandonment by parents, catastrophic impacts on their children, unhappy childhood and misery of orphanage life, sordid sexual abuse, difficulties in adoption, lack of self-esteem, guilt complexes, severe depression, tragic losses of loved ones through desperate suicide and sudden, totally unexpected heart attack, with a message of hope, positivity and light that it is possible for a deeply injured and scarred person to cope with, survive and somehow overcome an unhappy childhood, sexual abuse by perverts and the tragic loss of loved ones and to forgive parents for the wrong, injustice, pain and suffering they have caused.
