Stone’s interesting and sometimes harrowing life story dominates the first part of the book. But beginning at Chapter 28 on page 181 the search is on where it chronicles the use of DNA to find Stone’s birth parents. In sharing her journey, Stone says her goal is to inspire readers to find faith, hope and the courage to persevere, despite the odds.

Review: No Stone Unturned: A Remarkable Journey to Identity
TaleFlick, a Los Angeles company which launched in 2018, curates full-length fiction and non-fiction books, as well as unproduced screenplays into a searchable library for producers and development executives around the world. Taleflick read and reviewed my memoir and recommended it for development.
Philomena meets Lion in this captivating memoir—the story of an orphan abandoned on Christmas Eve by her young, unwed mother and the 44year journey undertaken to find her utilizing DNA technology and innovative detective skills.
What We Liked
This memoir represents a remarkably compelling and emotional story. The protagonist is determined and courageous, yet at the same time so much of her strength comes from her deep feelings. The willingness and ability of the author to share with the audience the vulnerability in her own story is what truly makes this a must read. She is honest and heartfelt on every page, and it effortlessly sweeps the reader along for the ride. The anecdotes within are at turns comedic and tragic, and they’re all unique and specific to her experience. This is a story that will stick with you.
A Village of DNA Cousins: How my DNA relatives became my search-support tribe
Adopted.com, an organization in Canada that seeks to reunite family members has become a one-stop solution for everyone in the pursuit of their biological relatives without the hassles of going through government organizations or hiring a private investigator, while also completely preserving privacy and preferences.
Adopted.com was so taken with the incredible support I received during my search and with the “Village of Cousins” that they asked me to share my experience with their readers.
