Sinossi

One innocent mistake… a lifetime of consequences.

After growing up as an only child, Amanda Lisandra wants a big family. But since she and her soldier husband can’t afford to have more children right away, Mandy decides to earn money as a gestational carrier for a childless couple. She loves being pregnant, and while carrying the child she dreams of having her own son and maybe another daughter…

Just when the nearly perfect pregnancy is about to conclude, unexpected tragedy enters Mandy’s world and leaves her reeling. Devastated by grief, she surrenders the child she was carrying and struggles to regain her emotional equilibrium.

Two years later she studies a photograph of the baby she bore and wonders if the unthinkable has happened—could she have inadvertently given away her own biological child? Over the next few months Mandy struggles to decide between the desires of her grief-stricken heart and what’s best for the little boy she has never known.

4.0 su 5 stelle The Offering 2 luglio 2013
Di Megan - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
The Offering is an extremely moving and touching story. I got misty-eyed several times and believe I would have cried had it not been for the synopsis giving SO much of the story away. If you have not read the description, PLEASE DON'T! If you're anything like me it will ruin the book for you! I hate it when the synopsis tells you things that don't happen until the last third of the book! I was reading and kept thinking "okay, when is such and such going to happen?" and I hate that! This doesn't effect my rating, much, because I don't believe the author has much say in this.

The story is about military wife Mandy's decision to become a gestational carrier as a way to earn some much needed extra money for her family. The emotions she went through were so well describe, that I couldn't help but connecting with her right away.

One issue I had with the story was when Mandy was deciding for which couple she would be a carrier. She had three applications, all three of the couples were well off, two of them were your traditional couple (man and woman), but the third was a gay couple (two men). This alone wouldn't have been a problem, I know there are probably many couples of this nature who go this route. What bothered me was Mandy's response to them. The only reason she excludes them is because of there desire to only have a male child, they wanted her to terminate any female embryos and that was something she wouldn't do. I personally felt this was an easy way for the author to exclude them without seeming judgmental.

Overall, this story was great and well worth reading. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a touching story.

***I received a complimentary copy of this book to review. I was asked to give my honest opinion of the book - which I have done.***

4.0 su 5 stelle A topic that hits close to home... 27 giugno 2013
Di Maggie C - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
I have to start out saying that this was a very tough book for me to read. I don't know why I signed up for the blog tour, knowing that post-partum hormones would be rampant while I read it. But sign up I did, and I got through it, slowly. I don't mean this in the way in that book was terrible, but in that it was emotionally hard. I consider this a tribute to the skills of the author - I felt many of the emotions that Amanda felt throughout the book.

Actually, I do know why I signed up to review this book, even knowing it would be an emotional read. Many people don't know this, but I carried twins as a gestational surrogate a few years ago. I wanted to see how factual the book was and I have to really applaud the author or not perpetrating the various myths about the process. There was only one little detail that was wrong but other than that I feel that the book stands as a tribute to gestational surrogacy and the miracles it can bring to life.

On another topic, it was interesting to see how Amanda interacted with her Cuban in-laws. While she didn't always get along with them, they totally stepped up to help her and her daughter in her time of need, even while they themselves were grieving. That's a true family, one that has your back no matter what. Even though Amanda later finds out the truth behind her relationship with her mother and begins to heal that rift, she is extremely lucky to have the loving family that she does.

Overall, I enjoyed this book, if it did need a couple of (boxes of) tissues while reading. When I finally got past the "hard part", the rest was smooth sailing and I finished quickly. While I know this is billed as Christian fiction, I think it would be better classified as women's fiction. It is definitely not focused on God or the characters' spiritual lives or needs.

I was given a copy of this book for free in order to provide a review as part of my involvement with Litfuse Publicity Group.

3.0 su 5 stelle Not My Favorite 29 maggio 2013
Di Mikeylynn - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
This is the first book by Angela Hunt that I have read. I had no idea what to expect. The start of the book sucked me in and I couldn't put it down. By the end I wanted to throw the book across the room. The back cover gives away the entire plot line, so you won't be surprised except for the final decision.
I can see this book becoming a best seller because it is what people want to read about and many can relate with this story line. I did not enjoy it as much but I do know others who would really enjoy the story.

5.0 su 5 stelle Awesome Book 23 luglio 2013
Di Glenda Alexander - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle
First let me say that I am an Angela Hunt fan, I have several shelves in my library that shelf her books. After reading one of her books some years ago I had to have them all. Which was great when I was working but after retirement and a limited income I cannot afford to buy all the books I would love to have. So when I'm lucky I win some and some I get some from the Library but that often takes a year as I live in a small mining town. And every once in a while the author/publisher blesses me by sending me their newest released book.

Angela Hunts books are thought provoking and stay with you forever. She puts her heart and love into her books as she does in her life. The story is about a military wife and her (Mandy's) decision to become a gestational carrier as a way to earn some much needed extra money for her family. The emotions she went through were so well describe, that I couldn't help but connecting with her right away. Angela is able to breathe life into her books, her characters come to life in your mind so clearly you can almost reach out and touch them.

A beautiful touching and moving story one you will not regret reading!
