December 12, 2019 (PRLEAP.COM) Entertainment News
The Name on the Envelope, a new book by Michael M. Dowd, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

Everyone has a story and for Michael M. Dowd his story is one of discovery-about who he is, how his life began, and the many twists and turns that led him to a family he never knew he had. Like most people, he experienced his share of happiness, sadness, pain, and suffering. But unlike most people, part of Michael's life remained a mystery.

It wasn't until he embarked on a journey to learn more about his birth mother that Michael began to realize that he spent most of life unaware that he had another family.

The Name on the Envelope is about Michael's journey to learn more about his family, but it is also about his reflections on his life and how our experiences shape who we are and who we become.
