Lisa and Tom Duffield are professors at Cornell University whose careers are rocketing in different directions. Tom is rapidly becoming the scapegoat for all the History Department’s woes, while Lisa, under the guidance of her mentor Jeff Wolf, is a rising star in the field of genetics.
When Lisa discovers a means to revitalize dead human cells, her career is made, but the excitement of her discovery is shattered by Wolf’s sudden death. Unable to conceive herself, Lisa devises a bold plan—to use a surrogate mother to clone her dead mentor.
When Tom learns of the plan, he’s furious. He’s not adverse to fatherhood, but he despises Wolf. The historian switches out Wolf’s DNA sample with genetic material from the crossbow bolt believed to have killed King Richard the Lionheart. The surrogate, a postdoctoral student by the name of Megan Brack, has placed her trust in the Duffields, who told her the DNA has come from commercial bio-stock.
Three people, each convinced they know the source of the growing baby’s DNA. They’re all wrong. The true nature of the child will trigger events no one can foresee—for good or ill.
