Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have a sibling but not be able to see them? What if you found out that they could be dying? What would you do to save them? On the other hand, what if you were an adoptive parent and someone claimed your child might have a rare disease, how would you react? In the new book, "Reclaiming Lily," those questions are posed and answered.

Kai Chang and Gloria Powell are two women fighting for one girl - Lily. Kai left China to find her sister, not only because of love or a promise, but also because of the rare disease she might have. Gloria has her heart wrapped around her rebellious teenage daughter and the thought that Kai might take her away is excruciatingly painful. As the story unfolds, Kai and Gloria must figure out how to work together to save Lily and to have a relationship with her. This powerful story deals with love, loss, adoption, clashing cultures, and faith.

I loved this book. The story was vivid and at times painful. The clash of cultures was sobering. I highly recommend this book to both individual readers and groups. There is so much to discuss here. I received my free review copy of this book from Litfuse and thank them for the opportunity!
