Publisher's Summary

It's never too late for a miracle.

When an old woman begs God to let her see the daughter who had been taken from her arms almost eighty years before - could her impossible prayer come true? In the summer of 1928, sixteen-year-old Minka was looking forward to a sewing class picnic. This would be a rare chance to put aside farm chores, don a pretty dress, and enjoy an outing with other girls. It would be a day to remember. And it was - but not in the way Minka had dreamed. Cornered by a stranger in the woods, the young girl was assaulted. Minka still believed that the stork brought babies; she would not discover for months that she was pregnant. The story that follows has been almost a hundred years in the making. What happens when a new mother must make a heartbreaking sacrifice to give her baby daughter the life she deserves? Can her cherished memories carry her through decades of turmoil, during a rapidly changing time in American history? And in the end, can she trust God for a miracle? The Waiting is an unforgettable true story of faith that triumphs, forgiveness that sets us free, and love that never forgets.

Good read. Simple Story!

This story was simple, yet it could pass for fiction. It's amazing how closely the people in this story intertwined for all those years. Also, it's an example of faith and a Mothers love.

INCREDIBLY MOVING!

Story of strength, faith, love, family, dedication, and so much more! I would recommend this to anyone, friends, family, make, or female. I wondered about Clara and I had hoped someone, maybe the Pastor or other responsible adult might have reported the incident to authorities. Incredible story!

Must read

A beautiful story, perfectly written and narrated. I could not put the book down and the author allows you to go through the emotions of the main character, so get the tissues ready. A truly remarkable story, that proves you should never lose hope or give up.
