The Girl with 35 Names – Part 2: Arrival
“Some stories have a beginning, middle, and an end. This is not one of those stories. A beginning, yes.
A middle, certainly, But an end”
Molly is a young woman, blessed with 35 names. Each one is a memory of a long-lost relative. Each one has a message that carries with it great power.

Her path is both a metaphysical and literal quest into the unknown. An amazing story, that will capture your heart, make you BELIEVE in miracles, and take you on a truly magical journey as Molly’s particular kind of magic, changes the world around her forever.
And as Molly’s story unfolds, you will come to see that in this way our story has no end. It will continue on as long as Molly and her particular kind of magic persist in the actions of those who encounter her tale.
