Publisher's Description

College student Amber Swansen gives birth alone. In desperation, she abandons the newborn, buries her secret, and attempts to get on with her life. No matter how far she runs, she can't escape the guilt. Years later and still haunted by her past, Amber meets Beth Dilinger. Friendship blossoms between the two women, but Beth's son is a constant, painful reminder to Amber of the child she abandoned. When heartache hits, causing Amber to grapple with the answers to life's deeper questions, Beth stands by her side. Yet just when peace seems to be within Amber's grasp, the truth of her past and the parentage of Beth's son comes to light and threatens to shatter not only their worlds, but the life of the teenager they both love.

    A decision is made in the moment, but it endures for a lifetime. The delete button is nonexistent no matter how hard we try. It is my opinion that movies I watch and books I read tend to go against this idea. Somehow there is always a word or action that erases the "bad stuff" in a movie, and everyone lives happily ever after. That there are no consequences. Or if there are, they're no big deal. Rachel Allord's book Mother of My Son is different. It's real and upfront. No sugarcoated details.

    When I started reading Allord's novel, I could see into the future of the characters a little bit more than I expected to. But that didn't stop me from putting it down. In fact, that is what I loved the most about this story of regret and redemption. I simply couldn't stop reading. Ask my husband, who was stuck organizing all the moving boxes while my nose was stuck in the book, and he will tell you how "useful" I was this past week. I'm guilty. I picked up the book Sunday and finished it on Wednesday. It felt good to be locked into a book. There was something about the way Allord portrayed each character; like each one had a secret, or a mystery about them, and I wanted to know what it was.

    It was a story that I knew well. And I knew it because of my own life experiences. Like Amber, I became pregnant in college. However, Amber and I made opposite decisions. She chose to subtract, and I chose to add. Yet there was still a connection made between Amber and myself. That connection wouldn't have been there if it weren't for Allord so vividly portraying the character's emotions, thoughts, and desires in such a personal way.

    Even though I was constantly on the edge of my seat, Mother of My Son did not leave much to interpretation. I could see what was coming from "a mile away." Even the back cover of the book provided me with more information than I wanted to know. However, this did not change how engrossed I was in the story. Somehow, knowing what was going to happen made reading more enjoyable and exciting. I wanted to know how all the events were going to unfold, and how Allord would put it all together. The story wasn't about what was going to happen next. In fact, I think most readers will confirm that it is well laid out for us. Instead, this book was about the decisions, emotions, and actions of the characters. I could feel myself thinking what each one was thinking, feeling what each one was feeling, and wanting to act on their part. Allord took real and different life experiences and whipped them up into an emotional ride for us readers.

    I would recommend this book to...everyone. As I was reading, I thought of myself, as well as a few people I knew that would relate to the story. But then I started thinking about all the people who might know of someone who had a similar experience as Amber or Beth or even Beth's son, Michael. So obviously they would appreciate the story too. THEN I thought about everyone who may not have experienced anything similar to the characters in the book, and I want them to read it to "walk in another's shoes." So no matter who you are and what type of reading you enjoy, take some time out of your busy schedule for Amber and Beth and open Allord's well-written story, Mother of My Son.
