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

Above All Things is a beautiful and deeply moving story about faith and family values. The main characters are faced with tragedy, and at times serious emotional trauma.

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