Product Description

Who said we can't choose our parents?

WINNER: Pinnacle Book Achievement Award, Summer 2019 - Best Fantasy

"...a dramatic, uplifting and thought-provoking piece of literature that anyone can enjoy." ~ K.C. Finn (5 Stars), Readers' Favorite Book Reviews

"This book will satiate your appetite for magical realism. ... It makes us feel better after reading the last page." ~ Vincent Dublado (5 Stars), Readers' Favorite Book Reviews

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]

PUBLISHER'S NOTE: In its Russian original, Born—Against All Odds was selected as 'Best Book of the Year' in the fantasy genre, at the International Russian Writers competition in Germany (2015). Its English translation by Krystyna Steiger (Canada) was awarded the second prize at the "Open Eurasia 5th International Writers Competition" in London in 2016. This version is newly edited for your reading pleasure.

About the Author

AUTHOR: Hope Silver is a Russian author, born in Siberia. Her pen name is the translation of her lengthy given name, Nadezhda Serebrennikova. Hope began her writing career as a journalist for several newspapers in St. Petersburg, before moving to Karlovy Vari in the Czech Republic, where she completed Born-Against All Odds, her first novel. After winning the green card lottery in 2013, she and her family emigrated to the United States. In 2015, the Russian original of Born-Against All Odds won the 'Best Book of the Year' award in the fantasy genre at the International Russian Writers Competition in Germany. The following year, Krystyna Steiger's English translation was awarded second prize at the 2016 Open Eurasia 5th International Writers Competition in London. Hope now resides in Berkeley, California, with her husband, son and daughter, who inspired her to write this magical narrative, in which fantasy and reality seamlessly overlap. Hope recently authored and published Curious Things, a collection of flash fiction, in which she endows inanimate objects with human emotions. She is an avid writer of children's stories and an active blogger, who writes about her travels and other adventures.

EDITOR: Lane Diamond has over 160 published books to his editing credit, including many multiple award-winners, across many genres and styles.
