Amazing author! This book really touched me as I was a black market child at age 4. This takes place in Northwest Oregon and I was from that area so the author has captured the surrounding very well. I could really relate to Chelsea's feelings and her needs. Jordan is the ideal hero here and I would recommend this book to everyone. It is a must read.

This is a story of lost love found, maybe. When Chelsea was growing up she was from the wrong side of the track. She was "one of those" that should not mix with the rest. Jordan was from the right side, rich and hansome. They fell for each other. Until she found out she was pregnant. She left without telling any one.The town thought she'd been abducted. Now ten years later she recieves a letter from Jordan demanding she bring thier child back to him. This story is about second chances. There is ...more

Please Check out the following review on my blog:

After reading Jesse's Brother by Wendy Ely recently I was dubious about continuing with reviewing her books...Boy! am I glad I carried on! After being a little hard on Wendy's first book I have completely 360'd.

Confessions is a cute tale, the plot line goes like this;

10 years ago Chelsea and Jordan get together, when Chelsea gets pregnant she runs away but everyone at home including Jordan thinks she's dead!

This is the 2nd book I read by Wendy Ely. The storyline was very sad. I love Jordan character. I loved what Jordan did. I felt sorry for Chelsea. I love little Elizabeth she is so adorable. I love the ending. I'm glad I purchased this book.
I liked some of this but found the h TSTL at times and both H & h were extremely naive about getting a child back. The H also cried a lot so if you want an alpha male, this may not be your story.

Loved it. Couldn't help but root for Chelsea and Jordan to have a happy ending. Another baby is just icing on the cake. Looking forward to the next book in the series.
Liked it ok enough but some of the story developement was a little loose, and the daughter's story could have been developed a little more.
