Congratulations to our client and author Lourdes D. Baron for winning the 2013 EOTM Awards for Outstanding Inspirational / Biographical for Scripted in Heaven.

About “Scripted In Heaven”: “Scripted in Heaven” follows the journey of Dr. Robinson V. Baron and his physical and metaphysical healing. As a stubborn surgeon, he ignores a cryptic warning from an old lady about a supposedly imminent complication with his health. The struggles that follow take him on a journey of spiritual renewal, which leads him to rediscover his true faith and his true love.

He seeks for the divine guidance of Padre Pio da Pietrelcina while trials and tribulations test him and his family. His devotion grows, even causing him to embark on a punishing pilgrimage to San Giovanni Rotondo in Italy, despite his fragile health.His mystical metamorphosis is a story of courage, sacrifice, and triumph. It inspires the reader to reflect on his own weakness and makes him long for purpose and truth in his mortal life.
