Review: Nobody's Child by Austin Boyd

Nobody's Child by Austin Boyd

Publisher:  Zondervan
Pages: 336 
Format: book 
Buy the Book: Amazon 

Goodreads:  Meet… Laura Ann McGehee—Determined to honor her father’s dying request, the young West Virginia woman will do whatever it takes to save the family farm, including using the one remaining financial resource she has—her body. 

Sophia McQuistion—Thanks to the unusual sacrifice of a woman she has never met, she carries the child she could never conceive. 

Ian Stewart—In Laura Ann’s time of need, he’s more than just a close friend. He is a source of grace, a man who loves Laura Ann through her many trials. 

When unusual circumstances place Sophia’s baby in Laura Ann’s care, Laura Ann is now the virgin mother of her own biological son. The media call him “Nobody’s Child.” But somebody wants him badly enough to steal the baby. Weaving together bioethics and faith, Nobody’s Child dramatizes a future that is already upon us with consequences we can no longer avoid.

Kritters Thoughts:  Are you looking for that book to curl up with on a snowy weekend?  This one is the perfect one to keep you cuddled under a blanket just wondering what is coming up on the next page.  The reader starts in the midst of a young woman's struggle as her father is battling for his life.  Set in a small town in West Virginia, I found it interesting to read a story set somewhere that I have never been and in a setting (family farm) that I have no connection to.  The descriptions of farm and small town life were beyond vivid.  From the first page, you are hooked into this story.

Laura Ann must work hard to keep her family's farm.  She goes to some extreme measures, of course, I can't share because that would obviously spoil your reading.  With conquering a farm, the weather and unexpected visitors, this book takes on a life of its own.  There is even an evil villain in her Uncle Jack.

A piece of women's fiction that is sweet and pure while also absolutely entertaining.  A read fit for any age because this story can hit home to any reader.

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
