The Offering By Angela Hunt GIVEAWAY!

One innocent mistake . . . a lifetime of consequences.
After growing up 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.

Well let me start by saying I love Angela's books, my favorite being The Note.
This one was true to Angela form, it is a book you can not put down.
I had a very hard time with the decision Mandy had to make towards the end of the book, I have thought about it many times since I have finished the  book and it is NOT one that I would have or could have made that is for sure.
I hope that you if you buy a copy of this book and read and enjoy it as I did you will let me know if you would have made the same very hard decision that Mandy made.
I recommend this book.
I gave the book 4 stars.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for my honest review.

  12. I haven't read any of her books. But it definitely sounds as though I might want to before long!

  13. I reviewed this book, too. Perhaps it's because I myself am childless and I have many friends who have adopted, but Mandy made the decision I wanted her to make, and it's the decision that I'd like to think that I would make. Interesting how we bring our own perspectives into our feelings about novels like this!
