How long can secrets remain undiscovered? What is "destiny?" Mary Blair Destiny is an unforgettable true story of serendipity, discovery, resilience, and healing.
Mary Blair Destiny is based on the true story of a young woman, Dorothy, who discovers her birth parents by a series of 'accidents' -- and their affluent yet tragic lives in old Virginia. Fate and chance encounters lead Dorothy to uncover details of her birth and then her surprising circumstances as an infant. Dorothy set forth on an unwavering quest to find answers and bring healing to her life, yet she carried shame to her grave. A prominent politician, a doctor's fastidious records, and a unique name, Mary Blair, solved the puzzle of Dorothy's life. Generations later, more details are unearthed, no longer buried with those that held the deepest family secrets. Dorothy's true story is the product of a different era in American culture, but her strength and resolve remain timeless for all ages.
