On January 19, 2011, Wiley Baxter was fifty-seven years of age when God brought a surprise to him through a phone call. Over the next four days, it was revealed to him that he was the biological father of identical twin daughters and four grandchildren, which resulted from a two-year marriage he had thirty-six years before. Until that time, Wiley and his present wife of thirteen years had no children of their own. Overjoyed and overwhelmed, he began a new chapter in his life. Thankfully, Wiley has been blessed with good health and good employment throughout his life, and this helped him and his wife enjoy the wonderful joys of his children being in their lives all the more. Wileys faith in God has grown significantly over the latter part of his life, which he believes is one reason why He set him down one day to share these miracles from God and his lifes story.

I guess I didn't find it really going anywhere and it was easy to stop at any point without being tempted to read further. The premise of the book is that Wiley Baxter was married early in his life. The marriage didn't work out and his wife left him. What she didn't tell him is that she was pregnant with twin daughters at the time. In fact, this remained a secret for more than 36 years. When he was 57, he found out that he had the daughters and that those daughters were now married with their own children.
The book chronicles Baxter's life pretty much before he met the daughters. He talks some of how his faith turned toward Christ and about his marriage to the woman who has become his helpmeet.
I did not care a whole lot for this book though I did read it all. It isn't very long and it is an easy read. If you want to read a true story that is all that, go for this one. If you are looking for a meatier book, you might want to pass.
