(134) When You Least Expect It by Whitney Gaskell

In her new book, When You Least Expect It
Whitney Gaskell touches upon a topic that is near and dear to the hearts of millions of women. Infertility.

India and Jeremy Holloway have spent a lot of money and a lot of heart on getting pregnant. When it is finally determined that India's chance of getting pregnant are slim to none, they spend their last dimes on an Adoption Agency. They are shocked when a short time later they are chosen by a birth mother. In an unorthodox move, India & Jeremy move Lainey into their guest home for the duration of her pregnancy. They soon settle into a new, tenuous, normal as they await the birth of their child.

I have never been through the painful process of trying to conceive, yet not being able to. But I do think that Whitney Gaskell has portrayed the pain in a realistic manner. I even found myself laughing out loud at the scene with the witchy sister-in-law. It was very satisfying to see her get what she had coming!

I really enjoyed When You Least Expect It. Infertility can be a very heavy subject matter, yet Whitney Gaskell wrote about it in a manner that was respectful, yet honest, in a way that is engrossing and absorbing for the reader. Well done, Ms Gaskell.


Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
