I offer you this short epistolary novel. I lived with the story and characters over 10 years. It came into being when I pondered the meaning of cellular memory and the ways we are connected. I finally structured the story during a Novel Writing Marathon in 2016. Because of the work I do, this story has special meaning to me. Yes, it includes trauma and pain, but it also includes hope, healing and relationship. The entire story is built around letters, journal entries and emails. I have tried here to recreate it in a way to let you enter the private lives of the characters.
