A young wife pregnant with her first child after years of struggling with infertility, learns along with her husband that he fathered a child with his ex-Fiance 7 years ago. Now the little girl's mother lies in a hospital room and he is called to meet and take responsibility for the child.

It's a story I read before, but I was very in the "twist" to this story, the little girl is Biracial. This added what I hoped were cultural elements and even issues regarding racism which were addressed. My fir...more

Where to begin.... I bought this book by accident, but it was a good purchase. I love angst and this has it.

This felt like reading Oceans Apart by Karen Kingsbury - same premise.

Luckily, she pulled it together and I liked the family by the end.
