Goodreads:  Everything is going great in Lorna Crawford’s life. She is married to a fantastic guy, is mom to an adorable two-year-old with another child on the way, has a posse of girlfriends, and recently landed a new job. The spiritual practices she has made a centerpiece of her life—yoga, mindfulness, meditation—are becoming second nature. But four months into her pregnancy, Lorna learns there may be something wrong with her unborn baby, a prospect that throws her life and her inner peace into turmoil. Over the next few months as a diagnosis awaits, Lorna is helped along by breathwork, family yoga, appreciation exercises, crystal-bowl relaxation, Ayurveda, chanting, spiritual reading, and more. Will all this be enough to get Lorna through the months of not-knowing—and possibly a devastating diagnosis?

Kritters Thoughts:  If ever there was a character that is the most unlike me, it could be Lorna Crawford.  A mother who is pregnant with her second and has recently found a lifestyle that really incorporates a mindfulness with meditation and yoga in order to go through life with an abundance of confidence and positivity.  

Although this character was far from my experience, I appreciated moving through her life through her eyes.  As a woman who isn't a mother, I was glad that Lorna had stressors in her life that were both personal and professional and as a mother and wife, I could relate to her moments in the office as she tried to keep her mindful spirit while also working a corporate job.  I can see myself adopting some of her techniques to get through a stressful moment or see the positivity in a person when I am having a hard time doing so!  

The ending!  Without spoiling anything, I was so frustrated with the ending.  I wanted more story when it ended.  I needed a conclusion and less unknown.  I felt as though the author left too much up to interpretation or is a sequel coming?

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