Nobody's Child, Pandora Files Series #1
Gripping Provocative Reading
This book offers so much - there's romance, there's mystery, there's community, there's drama, there's a handsome devoted hero and there's two strong, brave heroines. To top it all off, it really makes you think! Without any judgement or criticism, it forces you to think about issues like surrogacy, IVF, sperm and egg donation, and the true meaning of motherhood. The author seems very open minded, presenting as many sides of these multifaceted issues as possible without preaching, condescending or lecturing, and then leaves you to make up your own mind. I couldn't put it down and can't wait for the next book in "The Pandora Files" series.

Intervening With the Divine
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. Even though it is fiction it gives real to life consequences of what happens when we, as humans, choose to mess with God's design. Laura Ann is between a rock and a hard place. Her father is dying of cancer and needs some very expensive medication. The farm which has been in their family for years is in a financial bind due to her father's illness. To generate the income she doesn't have, she sells her eggs to a reproduction clinic. Although, she was brought up in church and taught to trust that God would always provide, she gets caught up in the advertisements for the quick cash she needs. Needless to say it wasn't all it was cut out to be.
As the story plot gets deeper, a woman shows up carrying Laura's biological child. In a sad turn of events, Laura has to make some tough choices, and someone else wants her child badly enough to take some very drastic measures.
I don't want to give away the whole book, but it is certainly worth the read. The challenges of faith verses bioethics is very interesting topic, considering the ideas present in today's society. This book really gets a person to thinking about these things and how they affect God's design for our lives. Is this part of His plan or are we taking matters into our own hands?? I received this book free from Zondervan Publishers for the purpose of my honest review. And I can definitely say, I was very impressed with it. The author, Austin Boyd, serves his community through Crisis Pregnancy ministries. You can check out his website HERE. I am looking forward to reading the next release from the Pandora Files.

I love a book that makes me stop and think.
Once I began reading the book I could not put it down. Classed as WomenÃ¢ÂÂs Fiction, and it is, it also reads like the Suspense stories I love to read most. So put the suspense with the relationship issues of WomenÃ¢ÂÂs fiction and Austin Boyd has a real winner here.
