One Woman’s Journey to Find a Truth
About the Book
Sarah Birch, an orphan from birth, after completing her collegiate career obtaining both an MD and a PHD takes her first job in New York City as a Research Biologist to the DANNAR Corporation. A traditional Millennial, with less than one year in the job, she quits the company. She desires to spend time seeking her biological parents. Her search leads her to her second cousin who has information regarding his mother’s past; information Sarah seeks as his Mother would be her Mothers sister. He, however, is reluctant to provide too much information as he is ashamed to admit that his mother is a nun; and was a nun at his time of birth. Undaunted, Sarah boards an airline and makes her way too Provence, France, the locale of Sarah’s cousins Mother. Sister Mary Theresa enlightens Sarah as to the rationale that both she and Sarah’s mother labored under as members of the cloth when they both conceived and delivered their children. Sarah ultimately uncovers the rationale behind such bizarre beginnings rapped in a conundrum of her former employer, the Church and the riddle of Mary Magdalene’s time in Southern France.
