OVERVIEW:

The lives of four women intersect in ways they never would have imagined. It all revolves around children and pregnancies. Unwanted pregnancies, aborted pregnancy, loss of a child and the empty arms of parents desiring a child. Author Nelson has written a masterful tale of these women, their lives and God at work in them. Some events might seem predictable while others are total surprises. It is a very moving book (I recommend tissues at your side) and one whose lessons will long stay with the reader.
