Cradled Dreams by Beverly Hoffman
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Surrogacy can be a touch subject for some, we hear of so many things going wrong and court cases happening.
Yes, I know this is fiction, but all fiction has to be realistic or it becomes a fairy tale. I believe this story line to be very realistic and took up many different avenues of becoming a surrogate Mother.
If you have ever been around someone who is unable to have children you will fully understand how they must feel. If an opportunity arises, an open door where they can get their dream fulfilled, why not take it?
Georgie did just that when her sister-in-law 'off the cuff' because of emotions offered to become a surrogate for her.
When all the practicalities are achieved and Robin is pregnant, then events start to enfold.
As I said in the beginning of my review, a touchy subject. And not everyone agrees with it, there is a lot of anxiety and trepidation that surrounds all of this as you will learn as you read.
I did love the story, and would recommend it. My three stars was because I struggled with the slow pace at the beginning. If I had a reason to put this down, I would have, but half way through it picked up and was a very satisfying read. Other than that I would have personally given it 4 stars.
I would certainly read more from this author as she has great craftmanship for relating a story that touches real life folk. Just up the pace a bit to keep a reader on their toes.
