“Birthless: A Tale of Family Lost & Found” explores the lingering effect of family secrets on three women friends and how the power of their bond gives each the strength to face a reckoning with her own past. The story asks the questions: Is it ever “too late” to confront the life-altering decisions of the past? What if, at age 60, you found out that you were adopted and everything you believed about your "family" was a lie? With each other’s support, three friends find answers to those questions and many more on a journey in pursuit of closure that takes them across the globe as well as across decades of history.Author and Genealogist Maureen Wlodarczyk takes us on a heartfelt journey from New York to Scotland and Ireland with three women whose friendship helps them face a reckoning with the long-concealed secrets of their youthful pasts. Memories of first love, young motherhood, and life-altering decisions are resurrected as each of them searches for reconciliation and peace after decades of self-imposed silence. What awaits them are unexpected discoveries that will redefine their understanding of love, loss, motherhood, and the meaning of family."I enjoy taking the reader with me as I tell a story, as if they were sitting alongside me talking over a cup of tea. In I am sharing the story of three friends with the reader, giving the reader a sense of personal connection with the characters and their struggles,” said Wlodarczyk, a New Jersey native with maternal family roots in Ireland. "Each of these three women has the burden of a personal secret hidden for many years. Circumstances cause their paths to cross and unexpected friendships are forged. This book explores the history of those women and how their secrets emerge as a result of that unanticipated friendship. A burden is always lighter when someone carries it with us and it’s always easier to be courageous if we aren’t walking alone.”Part of the story in Birthless takes place in Ireland in the 1950s when the Irish Republican Army was rebuilding ranks in a lead-up to its Border Campaign against British authorities in Northern Ireland. Belfast author and BBC correspondent Barry Flynn described Wlodarczyk’s depiction of those events as giving “a superb insight into an era long lost in Irish history.”
