From USA Today Bestselling Author, Gloria Silk this is a gripping, romantic and sensuous novel of marriage, fidelity, fertility and the power of love. “Gripping, romantic, sensuous and astute.” “New women’s fiction that touches all of our emotions, fulfills our yearnings, and opens up new possibilities.” Can Rachel and James find their way back into each other’s hearts after tasting temptation and facing devastating news? How strong is love in the face of reality? The seven year marriage between Rachel and her adoring patient saint of a husband has grown from great to blessed. But after years of failing to get pregnant all Rachel craves is a baby. Her marriage to James is perfect…until she bumps into her sexy ex-lover, Brandon. Her desperate thought of wondering if he can get her pregnant makes Rachel realize that something has to change. After having more fertility tests she meets a beautiful pregnant career woman. It seems destined, and as they bond the young woman offers Rachel a gift that will change all their lives. But has Rachel pushed her suddenly aloof husband away? Is it really his pressure at work or is he keeping something from her? Can they ever become a happy family, or is it too little too late? And where does Brandon come into all this when she discovers her husband’s biggest betrayal?

4 out of 5 (very good)

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

An emotional story full of sweet moments, tender friendships, misunderstandings and miscommunication.

I cried.....for so many reasons. The story wraps around you and leads you along Rachel's painful journey that is full of love and hope. My heart broke a little for her but swelled so much in the final chapters. Although a work of fiction the reality of this weaves all the way through. So many women have been through this on varying levels, with different end results. The writing is sensitive but still conveys the seriousness of what's happening.

The relationship between Rachel and Lori's characters is lovely. The way it builds and grows, how their lives are interwoven is brilliant. Admittedly I didn't care much for Lori to begin with, but as the layers were slowly removed and she became Rachel's best friend I couldn't help but love her.

The different childhood struggles experienced by the characters is another reflection on reality, how we strive to be different from our parents, which is what Rachel and Lori did.

You'll need tissues for this one, chocolate and a snuggly blanket.
