After discovering that her son’s friend, Ryan, is on the search for his birthparents, Lynn Assimacopoulos decides to use her skills as a genealogical hobbyist to find them. Delving through phone books, sending letters, and searching everything from the local library to the National Archives, Lynn is defeated by the lack of information she has to go on. However, a random search for Ryan’s birthmother’s name in an internet search engine yields a photograph of a family. Could this be the correct person? If so, will she even want to revisit her past and get to know Ryan? About the Author Lynn Assimacopoulos is a retired healthcare worker. Although she wrote for professional nursing journals in her adult life, she has been writing poetry and short stories since she was eight years old. When she is not writing or reading, she enjoys fossil hunting and archeology.
“Loved this book”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Amazon Customer
Loved this book! Rare, true story of one woman’s perseverance to find a man’s birth parents. I felt like I was on this search with her, sharing in the excitement and frustration of new leads and dead ends. Hooked to the end.
About the Author
Hello! I am a retired nurse who has always loved to write since I was 8 years old. In the past I have written for professional Nursing journals as well as some other books and poetry. My new book called “Separated Lives” is a true story about beginning a skeptical search for my son’s friend Ryan who wishes to find his birth parents. After I consent to help, I take him on a fascinating but uncertain and sometimes tearful journey with unexpected twists and turns in many directions. Readers’ comments about the book have been that it is “highly engaging”, “an emotional roller coaster” and “reads like a private diary”. I am hopeful that my adventure in searching will be of help to other persons in their birthparent search!
