Vetrasian scientist Mila Groso built a career out of developing cures for the galaxy’s deadliest diseases. After her husband and daughter are murdered in cold blood, she makes it her mission to find a cure for death itself. Her guilt over their deaths provides the ultimate motivation. 

Mila isn’t the only one interested in her research, though. When the planet’s religious leader sends his minions to stop her from potentially negating the existence of an afterlife, and a mysterious mercenary threatens her life unless she hands the research over, it becomes obvious too many people know what she’s doing. 

Fighting to stay alive, Mila must fend off both groups with their diametrically opposed goals and find the ultimate cure to resurrect her family. With so much hanging on her choices, this potential miracle may end up a greater curse than she can imagine.

@MsRight It doesn't happen every time, but I did go through and try to find a translation that works for my main character's name in this novel...that one worked out quite well, in my opinion. I'm just glad someone noticed... :-)

True. Especially with the shake up in the whole system these days. I feel like there a as many ways to make it work as there are successful writers.
