What if humans edited themselves genetically to settle on alien planets… what if one of them returned to Earth? Genetically modified humans have spread across the universe and settled human colonies in distant worlds. One of these, known as the Sorority, is on a mission to explore a mysterious world but becomes stranded near their ancient homeland, Earth. Aurora, a stern young scientist, descends to the planet and finds out what it means to love, suffer, and be human, and, as predicted by an ancient oracle, she finds an answer for her home planet's devastating social ills among Earth's animal population.

The relatively new "Upmarket" genre has never been more keenly and astutely demonstrated than in L. Dieudonné Lemmert's novel, Life, Unedited—a thriller science fiction background that incorporates a love story with the examination of the human conditions of ethics, morality, and their connection to mammalian life forms throughout the universe. In-depth knowledge of scientific theory added to an equally thorough education in human behavioral theory provides Lemmert with a solid foundation for creating a story that is at once a science fiction thriller with strong romance/emotional allure and that all-important sense of reality—verisimilitude. The stunning end of the story is unanticipated and beyond remarkable; a conclusion that will shock and simultaneously stimulate the imagination to ask what if? Life, Unedited is a fascinating story destined for a bestseller list and, potentially, an epic story of the future akin to but infinitely different from Orwell's classics 1984 and Animal Farm.
