Like Steve Jobs, Christine Black Cummings did not know her real father, but she wasn't going to let that stop her from succeeding. In her book, "Black-Eyed Susan A Love-Child Finds Her Father and Her Self" (published by Balboa Press), Cummings reveals how she discovered her self-worth and identity by searching for her biological father.

"While I relay my personal experience of finding my biological family," says Cummings, "the book's main message is that every child - regardless of how it is conceived or who its parents are- is an expression of divine love, a truth I encourage others to embrace before searching for their biological parents."

Set between World War II Hawaii and present day Southern California, the book is narrated by a woman identified as Susan with Cummings engaging in a dialogue with Susan as the book progresses. As Susan's identity is revealed, Cummings comes to understand herself and the changes that she undergoes in the search for her biological father.

Filled with powerful vignettes, "Black-Eyed Susan" leaves readers with a moving message of self-worth and accepting oneself. Cummings says, "I conclude that the little things can mean a lot. If not addressed, they can fester and grow like poisonous mushrooms, destroying one's sense of self-worth and creating holes that are harmfully filled, as with addictive behaviors."

"If we open ourselves to change," Cummings writes, "we can change our thinking, rise above conditions and create better lives for ourselves and for the world - and that the power to do so lies in us and is our divine birthright."
