Publisher's Summary

Who said we can't choose our parents?

Winner, Pinnacle Book Achievement Award, Summer 2019 - Best Fantasy
Honorable Mention, Readers' Favorite Book Awards 2020 - Fiction-Religious Theme

When we're born, we start with a blank slate, forgetting all that happened before. Most people think life begins at the moment of either conception or physical birth, but what if it really starts much earlier? What if we meet our parents even before they meet each other? What if we have a choice and can shape our own destiny?

Take a remarkable journey with a young soul who, upon finding his ideal mother, stops at nothing to make her his own. From the instant he first lays eyes on Lera - so cheerful, charming, and eccentric - 'Peace' knows she's the only mom for him.

Yet things don't always go the way we planned, even for souls desperate to be born.

Evolved Publishing presents the story of a soul desperate to be born, and of the people who come to make his journey an unforgettable one. (DRM-free.)

Loved it!

This story is about a young girl who lives in the beginning of the millennium in St. Petersburg, Russia. And it was very interesting to learn about the Russian lifestyle, traditions, culture. The characters in the story aren’t perfect but they are real, emotional, some of them with messy past. The reader gives every character a different voice and they're all wonderful! Can't stop thinking about Olga...

Beautiful story of first love and second chances

I listened to this audiobook during my trip to the east coast. There were so many emotions here - and you'll feel every one of them. Loved the narrator’s Russian touch, she really nailed Lera’s sense of humor. I recommend listening to this book with a box of Kleenex. I lost it at “Goodbye, mama ”.
