NEW THRILLER DEPICTS A DARKER SIDE OF REPRODUCTIVE SCIENCE
Description: On July 25, 1978, a five-pound, 12-ounce baby changed the world of reproduction. The birth of Louise Joy Brown, the first "test tube baby," was simultaneously regarded as miraculous and controversial. It gave hope to couples who were previously unable to have children, but it also created ethical questions about the beginning of life and tampering with nature. The thrilling new novel, Progeny, by Anita Bihovsky, asks how far you would go to find - or hide - the truth. Sitting beside her mother's deathbed, twenty-year-old Selene Mannon learns the woman she's about to lose isn't her biological parent. Grieving and confused, Selene sets out to discover the identity of her biological mother. Little does she know, the question isn't as simple as it seems. Curiously missing medical files kick off a mystery layered in secrets and deceit. Selene soon crosses paths with pediatrician Deandra Robbins, who is seeking the same files, which may hold the key to diagnosing three of her young patients' puzzling symptoms. Aided by private investigator Max Field, they work together to unearth a past that others are determined to keep buried at all costs.
