Warda's breakout novel opens in Barranquitas, Venezuela, a small and impoverished fishing village that serves as a world magnet for studying a genetic mutation that guarantees an early onset of a horrendous disease and premature death. With the help of an American volunteer, 18-year-old Barranquitas resident Tula Valdesa escapes to Chicago to participate in a leading university’s clinical trial that may alleviate symptoms.
“The Randomness of Life is a compassionate portrayal of life's real heroes and their families,” author Marilyn Warda said. “My hope is that someday soon there will be a cure to eradicate abnormal genes through gene silencing.
“The Randomness of Life is a lot like looking into a mirror. You can visualize yourself in each chapter as the story presents the ultimate of one's fears. The fact remains that despite advances in medical research and prolonging life, everybody dies. Knowing you will age into a neurological and motor decline that ultimately will incapacitate is a horror far surpassing any wrinkle or gray hair.”
