The Unexpected Gift review & GIVEAWAY!! CLOSED

This giveaway is now CLOSED! Congratulations to barbara and tawnda for winning. Winners chosen via random.org.



Product Description (from Amazon.com)

Drew Robbins Warren is a mother of two, whose husband has just left her for a younger woman. Leah Cline is a pregnant eighteen-year-old with no family, no friends, and no money. The only thing these women have in common is loneliness. Through their unlikely friendship, Drew and Leah learn to embrace life and everything that has been offered to them. But will either woman open her heart to love another man again?

About the Author
Meaghan Gonzales Wagar received her doctorate in education from Walden University and has pursued a career in public education. Michelle Bulmer Atha received two graduate degrees in education from Brenau University and has taught public school for thirteen years. Both authors have been divorced and struggled with being single mothers and full time employees.

MY REVIEW

I really like the concept of this story and I enjoyed the characters and general storyline a lot. The style of writing was a bit tough for me sometimes though... I found it a tad awkward to read. BUT the content is worth it :)
