[LISTEN] Sara-Jayne King overjoyed at finding her biological father

After a 702/ CapeTalk interview, the author of the autobiographical book Killing Karoline, Sara-Jayne King spoke to her dad for the first time.

Sara-Jayne's autobiographical book has garnered much praise and emotional reaction from readers since its launch earlier this year.

It is her story of how she was was born Karoline King in 1980 and was a result of an interracial affair, which was illegal under apartheid’s Immorality Act which led to an elaborate cover-up and hurried overseas adoption.

She says she grew up thinking she would never find out who her biological father was.

I was told in a letter from my biological mother that there was no hope of me ever knowing anything more about him than just his name

During an interview with Koketso Sachane on 702 and CapeTalk last week, she says, though hesitant, she revealed her father's real name for the first time.

And I am so glad I did. Within 36 hours I had a message...with a name a date of birth...asking if this could be your father?

Sara-Jayne King, author of Killing Karoline

I called the number on Saturday and confirmed and spoke to my father for the first time....I think it was a shock for him and it was a shock for me. But it's been overwhelming and I'm so delighted.

Sara-Jayne King, author of Killing Karoline

I've been received so warmly by him.
