In the late 60’s, Claire is a teenager, forced to give up her son for adoption. Twenty years later, despite the pain of loss that is always with her, she has built a new life with an understanding husband and two daughters. When she reconnects with her son—a moment she has both dreamed of and dreaded—the love they share soon spins out of control and her life begins to unravel.
A confronting story, The Last Taboo: A Love Story reminds us that despite our best intentions, the taboos of love between mother and son can make it dangerously difficult to heal the hurts of the past.
‘...a confronting story about the fraught relationship that develops between a mother and son reunited in later life after she gave him up for adoption as a teenager.’
