Reunion by Lauraine Snelling

Keira Johnson, a 50-year-old mother of two grown sons, believes she lives a good Christian life without secrets-- until she discovers a life-jarring fact her late mother kept hidden all her life. Kiera was born out of wedlock, and the man she had always known as her father had adopted her as an infant.

Meanwhile, Keira's beloved 17-year-old niece, Kirsten, has just discovered an unwanted pregnancy. Her boyfriend, Jose, is bound for college and Kirsten does not know what to do. As the family comes together for a reunion, Keira and Kirsten struggle with their fractured pasts and jumbled present. Will truth and honesty be the catalysts that allow the entire family to find peace?

Inspired by events in Lauraine Snelling's own life, REUNION is the author's finest novel to date.

My thoughts...

Snelling is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors, her books have such depth. As tough as an unwanted teen pregnancy is I thought she handled it wonderfully. Emotions ran high but family members gave Kirsten the love and support she needed. I loved that about this family and the fact that they kept telling her how much God loved her.

What I didn't like was the way Kirsten treated the baby's father, she acted like he had no say in the matter. She was rude and her behavior was immature.

Kirsten's father pastored a church and upon finding out about his daughter's pregnancy he renders his resignation. In the end things work out well. I definitely enjoyed the book and give it 4 out of 5 stars.

I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
