Full of heartache, tough decisions, dilemmas, drama and struggles of everyday life that most families go through at one point or another. This book, in two words, simply amazing!
This book follows the lives of Heather, her husband Kevin, and their 3 daughters – Emma, Amy and Lucy. Heather and Kevin began dating in highschool, only to find out shortly after they were pregnant. At the age of 17 Heather and Kevin get married, and a few months later their first born Emma was born. Life was hard, as they were a young couple trying to find their way in life. A few years later, Kevin is injured on the job at work, landing him on disability payments as he is unable to return to work due to back problems. Already with 3 children at home, and struggling to find enough money for their rent, bills and not to mention food and clothes, Heather finds out she is pregnant again with baby number 4! What are they going to do? They can’t afford things as it is, life at home is hard, they are getting eviction notices, and now they are expecting another child!?
Heather is faced with the unthinkable dilemma – to terminate the pregnancy, to give the baby up for adoption, or keep the baby? What will she do?
After discussing it with her husband Kevin, they have made the tough but necessary decision to give the baby up for adoption. Heather looks into this and comes across a woman named Grace. Grace is a successful working woman, who has no children and she is single but desperately wants a child of her own to love and raise. Heather thinks Grace is perfect to adopt their baby. Their lives become connected through the child and the love they all share for the child.
As you keep reading there is so much heartache and sorrow, and devastating news that rocks you to your core! A twist I was definitely not expecting at all.
So be sure to strap yourself in for this gripping, thrilling roller-coaster of a ride as you read this book. You’ll love it and trust me, you won’t be disappointed. But make sure you have some tissues handy, as you will surely cry at least once or twice.
