It’s my fervent desire to expose readers to a variety of cultures and ethnicities side by side

What if someone told you that you had a doppelganger halfway across the world? Would you search for the person to seek answers about your origins? In “The Midwife Factor,” 19-year-old Morgan Wellington faces this dilemma. An adopted child from a prestigious American family, Morgan sets off in an adventure to Budapest to find her lookalike and see if she can explain the flashes of another’s thoughts, feelings and dreams that she has sensed since childhood.

Traversing from Cincinnati to Budapest to Romania, the book unveils lively characters along Morgan’s path: Lynn Davis, the savvy private detective, Flossie Walker, the octogenarian African-American midwife who holds the truth of Morgan’s birth, and a sinister sociopath on the verge of release from prison.

“The Midwife Factor” appeals to readers who have ever wondered “what if” about their life, “what if” they had been born in another country to another family. Throughout the book, author GiGi Gossett weaves fiction with thrilling mystery and creates a diverse cast of characters befitting today’s modern international landscape. Gossett’s inspiration for the book came from twin sisters of hers who passed away when they were young.

“The telepathic relationship has always fascinated me, as has the global role of midwives,” said Gossett, “It’s my fervent desire to expose readers to a variety of cultures and ethnicities side by side—much like our world today— and create a work of fiction that readers won’t be able to put down.”
