The perfect candidate to carry their child...with the perfect opportunity to destroy their lives.
When Kyle Dolan convinces his wife, Bethany, to hire a surrogate for their last surviving embryo, they allow themselves to hope once again. A med school student, Laurel Bergin seems perfect in every way. Problem is--Laurel Bergin is really Sable Lynde.
As the pregnancy progresses, Sable's dark secrets surface, and her inner demons spill out into the Dolans' lives. In a terrifying encounter, Sable is injured and lapses into a coma. Now the Dolans face psychological and supernatural forces they never knew existed.
Fearing for their sanity, their own lives, and the life of their baby, they confront the surrogate--and the darkness surrounding her--in a heart-stopping climax that will keep you reading late into the night.
Krista5 Stars Out Of 5July 7, 2005KristaThe Surrogate is a thrilling book that will captivate you from beginning to end. The writing is superb! The writing style allows the reader to feel the emotions right along with the characters. There were moments in the book when the actions of one of the characters frustrated and angered me like crazy! However, Ms. Mackel does an excellent job of fully developing the characters, giving the reader enough information to sympathize with even the meanest and most irresponsible character. There wasnt a dull moment in the entire book. It was a fast paced book full of awesome twists. The book had several wonderful themes. It illustrated how God always works for the good of those who love Him. Good can come out of even the worst situations. Also, the ending of the book is an excellent example of the impact being loving and compassionate could have on others, even when its undeserved. If youre looking for a suspenseful, well-written, page-turner with an excellent message, this book is perfect!
Sue5 Stars Out Of 5February 5, 2005SueI just finished this book. I'm a very busy teacher and don't have a lot of time to read. BUT this book grabbed me and wouldn't let me go till the end. The suspense in the book kept me on the edge of my chair. The story is more than just one filled with action, it is also one that has a deep meaning for us all... unconditional love. Now I am at a loss, not knowing what could follow this book.
Megan5 Stars Out Of 5July 8, 2004MeganIt's suspenseful, scary, quick-paced, with a lot of heart. There are characters of all ages, from a young teen-age hiphop kid to older teens, to middle aged. Lots of plot twists but not light on character. Lots of scary parts but lots of quiet and moving scenes, too.
