Lucky Baby by Meredith Efken, a review

Meg Lindsay is a Christian woman who is still affected by her controlling, mean mother. Finally she gets around her wounded heart enough to want to be a mother herself–specifically, to adopt a child from China. It takes some fast talking before her geeky atheist husband, Lewis, gets on board with the idea.

Softly and Tenderly by Sara Evans with Rachel Hauck, a review

Jade lives in Tennesse in a small town dominated by her in-laws, under pressure to get pregnant from her lawyer husband. But she keeps having miscarriages. Then she finds out her in-laws’ marriage is a wreck under the surface. Her husband tries to beat his addiction to perscription pain killers. Her mother, who has come to stay with her, is dying of leukemia. It sounds like she’s living a Southern soap opera.
