The Lost Heiress

Knowing who we are is essential to our identities. Being informed on our cultural backgrounds, ancestral lineage and even what type of tea our mother loves to drink can have a profound effect on the individual we become. But what if you don’t know such information? What if the past has been shielded, hidden away from you and all you are left with, is a simple pearl necklace that provides so few clues?

This is a problem Brook has to face in the Lost Heiress byRoseanna M. White
. When Brook was just a babe she was separated from her family and whisked off to another country, where she was raised in a palace. Questions regarding, her past, parentage and nationality were always at the forefront of her mind. But those questions are not answered until one fateful day when her childhood friend Justin arrives giving her the answers she seeks. She is not a paupers' illegitimate daughter, but a baroness. An heiress. As more questions gather in Brook's head she travels to England where in a matter of days she is introduced to her long lost father and a lifestyle she barley understands. The culture is different. The family is different. Even her relationship with her childhood friend is different. And Brook is once again asking who is she.

What Brook and others need to understand is we shouldn't rely on our culture, parentage or choice of drink to form our identities. Instead we should allow the master of the universe to fully form us into the perfect image he desires of us. For culture, family and titles shall pass away, but who we are in him can never be undone.
