Let's get the disclaimer out of the way first: I did win this as a Goodreads giveaway, but this is not a paid review...
A heart, it's a pretty basic plot. A married couple are having issues conceiving, and find out that the wife, Olivia, is infertile. She is crushed by this news, as all she has ever wanted to be was a mother. After one accidental relationship, eighteen-year-old high school graduate Allison finds herself pregnant and scared. The rest should speak for herself.
I have mixed feelings about this book. Whilst the story was moving and uplifting, it was fairly predictable, and I never really felt myself connecting with the characters. I also found the religious 'jargon' difficult to understand. As an atheist without any idea of even exactly what religion it was, I think that better explanations of some related things (like "visiting" for just catching up or talking) would made it more accessible to a wider audience. I think this lack of understanding also contributed to not being able to quite connect with the characters.
That aside, it's still a beautiful story, that really does fill you with 'hope' at the end. It seems insight into the challenges of both infertile families, and teenage pregnancy, and all the characters seemed different and well-defined. It was a heart-warming and up-lifting read, so if that's what you're looking for, than I would definitely recommend this book!
