Publisher's Summary

"A child of my own. Flesh of my flesh...." That is the deep yearning that fills Tess' heart. Despite years spent under a doctor's care and advances in medical technology, she and her husband have discovered their options have been exhausted, leaving them with arms empty, long-held dreams shattered.

A unique opportunity arises in the form of a young pregnant teen desperate to free herself from her misguided decisions. Drawn together by their mutual needs, Tess and Sherry see a solution in what the other offers. But what appears to be an ideal agreement soon tests the fragile threads of Tess' fledgling faith.

Not her best book

The storyline was just okay and I didn’t care for the narrators voice at all. I wouldn’t recommend this book.

Good message

Story good. Very thought provoking. Tess was slow “growing up” emotionally! Narrators voice for Tess was nasally & somewhat annoying. Overall would recommend.
