The Offering by Angela Hunt *Review and Nook HD Giveaway



About the Book

After growing up as an only child, Amanda Lisandra wants a big family. But since she and her soldier husband can't afford to have more children right away, Mandy decides to earn money as a gestational carrier for a childless couple. She loves being pregnant, and while carrying the child she dreams of having her own son and maybe another daughter. . .
Just when the nearly perfect pregnancy is about to conclude, unexpected tragedy enters Mandy's world and leaves her reeling. Devastated by grief, she surrenders the child she was carrying and struggles to regain her emotional equilibrium.


Two years later she studies a photograph of the baby she bore and wonders if the unthinkable has happened---could she have inadvertently given away her own biological child? Over the next few months Mandy struggles to decide between the desires of her grief-stricken heart and what's best for the little boy she has never known.

My Thoughts:
I think this is the first book I have read with a subject of being a surrogate mother. What an emotional decision! I actually do know a mom who was one, but it was for the love of it, not for monetary compensation. I had a hard time with the concept of Mandy putting herself out there to help a family she didn't know, to make as much in a year as her husband does, in my opinon because she wanted a house. This book really made me think about what is important in life. This will be a book that you will struggle with in your mind and thoughts about what you would do. Not a light, easy read, but definitely one that puts out there some very real, and heart wrenching issues.
On a side note I thought it was fun that there were Latin American's and French speaking people in the book, and the author used 3 different languages in her text, now there is talent!
