ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Elizabeth Maddrey began writing stories as soon as she could form the letters properly and has never looked back. Though her practical nature and love of computers, math, and organization steered her into computer science at Wheaton College, she always had one or more stories in progress to occupy her free time. This continued through a Master’s program in Software Engineering, several years in the computer industry, teaching programming at the college level, and a Ph.D. in Computer Technology in Education. When she isn’t writing, Elizabeth is a voracious consumer of books and has mastered the art of reading while undertaking just about any other activity.
She lives in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. with her husband and their two incredibly active little boys.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Can pursuit of a blessing become a curse?
June and July and their husbands have spent the last year trying to start a family and now they're desperate for answers. As one couple works with specialists to see how medicine can help them conceive, the other must fight to save their marriage. Will their deferred hope leave them heart sick, or start them on the path to the fulfillment of their dreams?

Book two in the series follows twin sisters in their journeys to become pregnant. The author has done a good job of allowing us to feel the pain, anger, and hopelessness of infertile women. Not only is the journey expensive but there are moral dilemas June and July face.
One of the sisters does become pregnant and we see how the other sister handles the news as well as the mom to be and the effects it has on her knowing her sister isn't and may never get pregnant. I liked the book and look forward to seeing what else happens in their lives.
