In a future of near genetic perfection, Darci discovers that she was cloned as an infant. As she struggles to come to terms with the situation, she also fears for her life. When she comes face to face with her clone, she finds herself confronting unexpected questions. Are they exactly the same person or are there some intrinsic differences — something like a soul? Both the morality of human cloning and the potential for people to cover their tracks through the time-honored tradition of manipulating language are issues in this fascinating work of science fiction.
