    This review was written for Lucky Baby.
    Put forth as a story of an older adopted child from China, to me it was a story of family, all families. Beautifully written with a touch of magical realism, you see inside the souls of both the adoptive parents as well as the adoptive children. I look forward to many more books from this exceptional and talented writer.

    This review was written for Lucky Baby.
    Meg Lindsay, the heroine of Lucky Baby, seeks to repair her wounded heart by stitching together a family of her own. She and her husband, Lewis, set out to adopt an orphan, Zhen An, from China, but their journey exposes more than their own hurts.Wen Ming, a slightly older blind girl, is Zhen Ans only friend in the Chinese Orphanage. Her side of the story is one not often heard in the typical adoption account. Wen Mingwith her strength, tenacity, and fierce loveserves as a counterpart to Meg Lindsays desperate but at times tentative affection for her daughter. The two struggle to forge the true bonds of family and move beyond the losses they've suffered.The author weaves Meg and Wen Mings tales together with exquisite prose. I loved her use of magical realism. Each of the symbolic elements felt like a feast. I told myself Id savor the delectable words, and then I gobbled them up anyway. But the best thing about a good book is that you can always read it again. Lucky Baby is a fragrant and satisfying story of family and healing and how the two are possible despite the pain of rejection. I highly recommend it for moms and anyone who enjoys rich, evocative, magical tales.
