The Offering by Angela Elwell Hunt ~ Litfuse Blog Tour and Review

The Offering: A NovelMy Review: An intriguing book that delves into the subject of surrogacy and it's effects on the modern day family.

Amanda Lisandra is a military wife, struggling to make ends meet and put her daughter through school, when she hears of a way to earn money with one of the few resources she has, her body to give a childless couple a baby.
But then her husband dies leaving her distraught. But then when she sees a picture of the baby she gave away, she begins to question, and wonders if she might have given up her and her late husband's own biological child...

This was a heartbreaking read, because I felt like this was such hard situation so many ways around and my heart hurt for what Amanda lost.

The story was well written with a portrayal of the emotions that Amanda was going through, at times it was just so hard to read, because of the parallels of what it was like for Amanda and her sister-in-law, Amelia.

I felt that Ms. Hunt did a good job of portraying Amanda and how normal women are convinced to be surrogates.

Overall, a well told story with a bitter sweet taste to it, Amanda had to make so many tough choices that tested her and her faith to the limits, I can't imagine what she was going through. A great book for those who like a emotional read on a controversial subject.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!

About The Offering:

From bestselling author Angela Hunt, the heart-wrenching story of a young mother who unknowingly gave away her own child after serving as a surrogate for a childless couple.

After growing up as an only child, Amanda Lisandra wants a big family. But since she and her soldier husband can't afford to have more children right away, Mandy decides to earn money as a gestational carrier for a childless couple. She loves being pregnant, and while carrying the child she dreams of having her own son and maybe another daughter. . .
Just when the nearly perfect pregnancy is about to conclude, unexpected tragedy enters Mandy's world and leaves her reeling. Devastated by grief, she surrenders the child she was carrying and struggles to regain her emotional equilibrium.
Two years later she studies a photograph of the baby she bore and wonders if the unthinkable has happened---could she have inadvertently given away her own biological child? Over the next few months Mandy struggles to decide between the desires of her grief-stricken heart and what's best for the little boy she has never known.
