Cheryl Hedstrum, a mother of three who lives in Florida with her husband, has completed her new book “Welcome Home”: a touching memoir of how a person, after fifty-odd years, can uncover the uncomfortable truths surrounding her origins and forge relationships with long-lost relatives after decades of lost time.

Author Hedstrum unflinchingly conveys the intricacies involved in such personal detective work, when hopes and fears clash with the indifferent complications and stigma of DNA testing: “There was a lot of repercussions over doing the DNA test for me and my sister Alice. My other two sisters were not happy with us for doing it. They said ‘It doesn’t matter’ ‘He raised you,’ and I did not have a right to do the DNA and how could I drag Alice into all this. Needless to say, they kept saying I hurt my dad, I was being selfish, and that I knew all along that he wasn’t my father. That was a lie. I suspected that he wasn’t after people kept bringing it up to me, but I never knew for sure until the results of the DNA test.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Cheryl Hedstrum’s new book reads like a gripping mystery novel as well as an inspiring autobiography, and readers who find themselves searching for the truth of their own beginnings can take heart in Hedstrum’s surprises and successes.

Readers who wish to experience this stirring work can purchase “Welcome Home” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
