When her joy over the birth of her daughter is overshadowed by complications of depression and autoimmune diseases and she fears she can't balance the demands of motherhood against those of her own parents and husband, Maya decides to investigate alternative methods. In Pursuit of Change is the result—offering encouragement, knowledge and joy to women who might otherwise not know where to find it as they struggle to adjust to their new role.
Becoming the mother of her wonderful daughter Luna has left Maya thrilled and proud, but since returning home from the hospital with the baby, Maya struggles with lack of energy, pain in her joints and insomnia. She had suffered from the illness before and energy therapy made her feel better, as did the support of her husband Luca, her knight in shining armor.
But this time the stress is compounded by her complicated relationship with her mother, Ruza, who competes with Maya for Luna's attention. While Maya fears that her autoimmune illness would make her an invalid unable to take care of her baby, she is also afraid that her relationship with Luna might end up being no better that hers with her mother. When the pressure of having to deal with her mother, distant father, and occasionally nervous husband gets to be too much, she decides to go to the New Energy Relaxation Center and take part in the expensive healing sessions once again.
