Would have been SO much better had the back cover blurb not given away over 75% of the plot This could have been a great novel, but unfortunately, the book description gives away most of the plot It detracts from the enjoyment of an unfolding story and its twists and turns However, the medical and cultural details are fascinating and add to the drama.Amanda and her soldier husband have a difficult time making ends meet When Amanda hears of becoming a gestational carrier for an infertile couple, [...]

The last time I read a novel by Angela Hunt was years ago, maybe twenty Then, as now, I was drawn to her interest in writing about current day, relevant issues The last novel I remember reading centered around the issue of abortion and its link to breast cancer In The Offering, it s about surrogate pregnancy, a topic that s fascinated me ever since a neighbor bore twins on behalf of her sister.As always, the depth and breadth of Hunt s research manifests in her storytelling She also puts togethe [...]

This is a very well written book, though I highly recommend that you DO NOT READ THE BOOK S DESCRIPTION BEFORE READING THE BOOK Thankfully, another reviewer pointed this out, and I was able to completely avoid the book blurb Of course, I read the book s description after I finished the book, and I can t believe how much of the story is given away For this book, in particular, it s much better to go into the story not knowing any details, other than it s a story about surrogacy It s a story that [...]

This was an exceptionally written book, and I have nothing but praise for the style, the story, and in many aspects, the reality of the story I always am impressed when Christian authors venture into areas that many don t dare to go, and that of surrogacy is just such an area I honestly didn t even know that surrogacy was something that was still going on, but I learned that it is definitely a thriving, lucrative business that just tends to stay out of the news.One of my few complaints is that t [...]

I just finished this book and I have to say that it really got me to thinking about a lot of things as a strong, pro life Christian I never gave much thought to surrogate pregnancies either the woman who carries the baby or the IP s Intended Parents but that has changed, then again I m not going to start wondering if every pregnant woman is a surrogate or not Amanda and her husband, Gideon story picks up quickly from the first page and through a 1st person telling we see Amanda s coming to grips [...]

I started reading this book and thought the book had promise based on glancing at the synopsis Ironically, I have not been able to get into it yet It spoke early on about surrogate mother for a couple, which I met someone at work who is also considering doing this for a family in 2016 I may just pass on this reading but was able to finish the ending left me speechless and had to believe for a grieving widow and mother it took nearly to the end to like 2.75Leisure read 2015.

Oh my I have been crying while reading The Offering Not too many books have that ability for I am not one to drop a tear But the realization that doing a good deed while working on providing for your own family can blow up in your face Then the horror of knowing that you need to do what is right and best Oh me, oh my, how does one decide

Wow, just wow This book explores so much in a realm I have never really thought about even though I have a friend who used surrogacy The Offering is touching, painful at times and joyful all at the same time and well worth the read The characters add a richness, especially Amanda s Mandy s extended family Even though Mandy is a gringa, and doesn t understand their Spanish all the time, she seems to fit in well with this Cuban American family her husband has brought her into While there are some [...]

The Offering was an intriguing story about Mandy, a young military wife, who enters into a surrogate pregnancy in order to help provide greater financial stability for her own family The pregnancy is pretty much uneventful and all goes well until the day Mandy received news of her worst nightmare come true She goes into labor immediately, delivering the child and promptly handing him over to the parents who had ordered and paid for him The story doesn t end there though.I was thoroughly drawn in [...]

I had an idea this was going to be light reading when I picked this book up after the very intense, suspenseful reading of Jeffrey Deaver s The Killing Room I thought it would be a relaxing change from that book In some ways, it was In other ways, it was a stunner Pleasantly surprising me, it captured my attention from the beginning and kept me hanging on until the last pages This book was every bit as piercing in its own way I was swept up in the story.Ms Hunt is a new author for me She writes [...]

I have to start out saying that this was a very tough book for me to read I don t know why I signed up for the blog tour, knowing that post partum hormones would be rampant while I read it But sign up I did, and I got through it, slowly I don t mean this in the way in that book was terrible, but in that it was emotionally hard I consider this a tribute to the skills of the author I felt many of the emotions that Amanda felt throughout the book.Actually, I do know why I signed up to review this b [...]

The Offering is an extremely moving and touching story I got misty eyed several times and believe I would have cried had it not been for the synopsis giving SO much of the story away If you have not read the description, PLEASE DON T If you re anything like me it will ruin the book for you I hate it when the synopsis tells you things that don t happen until the last third of the book I was reading and kept thinking okay, when is such and such going to happen and I hate that This doesn t effect m [...]

I would give this book 3 1 2 stars I really wish would implement a half star rating The writing was fine, the story was interesting, and the characters were likable My biggest frustration was feeling like I was being hit over the head with foreshadowing It was like fore sledgehammering Yes, I get that there were significant events that had to happen for the story to unfold, but a less intense forceful insistence that I NOTICE ALL THE THINGS would have made the book enjoyable I m a lazy reader, [...]

Once I started reading this book, I could not put it down Even though a lot is given away, by reading the back of the book, I kept hoping it wasn t true It was almost like waiting for the other shoe to drop.While I was questioning my Christian beliefs, with regard to the unused embryos This is thorough talked about in the story Not that I agree with it, but it does give thought.What would you do When my daughter experienced fertility, I thought about doing what Mandy did, but is it morally right [...]

There aren t many places or many emotions that this novel doesn t touch The Offering is a tangled weave of high and lows but told in such a way that these characters come alive and almost as though you might know them.Could you imagine carrying another woman s child because she can t carry her own What about finding that this baby might in fact be your own Is such even plausible Could you put yourself in the shoes of our heroine I think than anything, the novel asks these questions above all ot [...]
