Product description

Product Description

A transplant patient possesses eerie knowledge of his organ donor’s most intimate secret. This could change everything.

  • WINNER: Pinnacle Book Achievement Award – Best Literary Fiction
  • RECOGNIZED: IndieReader’s Best Reviewed Books of 2017 – Literary Fiction
  • SILVER MEDAL: Independent Publisher Book Awards (IPPY) – Best Cover - Fiction
  • FINALIST: National Indie Excellence Awards – Contemporary Novel, General Fiction
  • FINALIST: Next Generation Indie Book Awards – Religious Fiction

Nephrologist Cullen Brodie’s disbelief in the afterlife is tested when a cross-dressing transplant patient exhibits behaviors and traits of his female organ donor—details about whom the patient inexplicably knows. The patient’s eerie knowledge of his donor’s greatest secret forces Cullen to consider the unimaginable: transmigration of a human soul.

Midwest Book Review: "As events spiral beyond [the characters'] control, readers are introduced to a questioning process that challenges them to consider the disparate paths of personal change and the possibilities of medical and religious realms intersecting in unusual ways. All these facets, especially the winding commentary on transgender identity and evidence of a soul, could easily have become confusing, especially when given an added shot of intrigue and the elements of a medical mystery; but under Barager's pen the logic of events and the evolution of personalities and new beliefs are impeccably drawn, and fascinating."

EVOLVED PUBLISHING PRESENTS a fascinating glimpse into a world where medicine and religion/philosophy intersect, in a literary novel sure to fascinate, and quite possibly to entice you to examine your own beliefs. [DRM-Free]

About the Author

AUTHOR: By day I'm a nephrologist, treating dialysis patients and kidney transplant recipients. By night I write fiction. I believe the two finest callings in life are doctor and writer, one ministering to the human condition, the other illuminating it, and each capable of transforming it. I earned BA and MD degrees at the University of Minnesota and did my postgraduate training at Emory University in Atlanta and the University of California in San Diego. I live now in Orange County, CA. I am a champion of the healing power of literature, and sometimes prescribe novels or short stories to patients to help them cope with illness. Fiction explores meaning in a way science cannot. Sometimes only fiction tells the truth.

EDITOR: As an editor, I appreciate stories with pace and humor-and no dangling participles. Genres of particular interest include nature writing, creative nonfiction, speculative fiction, and books for children & young adults. I earned my MFA from Vermont College of Fine Arts, and I teach at New Hampshire Institute of Art.
