Ибо так возлюбил Бог мир, что отдал Сына Своего Единородного, дабы всякий верующий в Него, не погиб, но имел хизнь вечную.

Review: The Long-Awaited Child by Tracie Peterson

"A child of my Own. Flesh of my flesh..." That is the deep yearning that fills Tess's 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's fledgling faith....

The answer is very different from what they were expecting...."

Well, this has been on my TBR list for longer than I can remember, and I finally got to read it. I loved it. I'm not sure what I expected from this book. I just... Well I love books that have to do with adoption and of course that was this book through and through. I loved that aspect. This book is very emotion packed. Definitely the way to get me. But it was so short. Less than 300 pages, which makes me feel a little jipped when I think of it. I enjoy getting to know the characters over long periods of time and there were multiple months skipped at a time here. I just felt like I didn't have enough bonding time with these characters ;) I wish there was more of Brad and his feelings. And Tess could have been a little nicer. Sherry could have had more POV... That being said, I would point out that this book had me guessing for most of the way. I went back and forth on how the ending would go. I didn't cry... but I would have. It was a very good book that has me begging for more. 4 stars for this sweet book. Definitely worth the read. I'm glad it's joining my other books on my Tracie Shelves!
