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.Purchase a copy:


Would being a surrogate mother be worthwhile, considering what a woman has to go through to have a child? Would it be worth the money you are paid? In Amanda Lisandra’s case, things didn’t go at all the way she planned. And the worst of it is that she is sure she actually gave away she and her husband’s own flesh and blood, and how could this have happened?

Author Angela Hunt writes yet another masterpiece in her new book, The Offering. I love books that capture my attention in the first few pages, and this one did that for sure. Angela Hunt weaves together the story of a family struggling just as we all do to make a better life for their family. And since Amanda didn’t have a college education, being a surrogate mom just sounded like an awesome way to put her family ahead financially. But as we follow her journey, the twists and turns that take place in this amazing story will keep you so engrossed in this book that you will have to remind yourself to come up for air! I love, love this story, but it is difficult to read some of it because it is so heartbreaking and very sad. And I really wish I hadn’t read any reviews or the back of the book because it just gives away too much information. I like to know a little about a book, but thats it, just a little. I read so many books that, if given too many things to think about, I can figure the story out, and I really don’t like that. I like the surprises of finding out everything while reading!

Five Miles South of Peculiar

Five Miles South of Peculiar


Five Miles South of Peculiar CoverDarlene Caldwell has spent a lifetime tending Sycamores, an estate located five miles south of a small town called Peculiar. She raised a family in the spacious home that was her grandfather’s legacy and she enjoys being a pillar of the community . . . until her limelight-stealing twin sister unexpectedly returns.


Carlene Caldwell, veteran of the Broadway stage, is devastated when she realizes that a botched throat surgery has spelled the end of her musical career. Searching for a new purpose in life, she retreats to Sycamores, her childhood home.


Haunted by a tragic romance, Magnolia Caldwell is the youngest of the Caldwell girls. Nolie spends her days caring for her dogs and the magnificent gardens she’s created, but when she meets a man haunted by tragedy, she must find the courage to either deny her heart or cut the apron strings that tie her to a dear and familiar place.


Five Miles Sough of Peculiar is the Caldwell Estate. Darlene, almost fifty, a widow with her two children living far away rules the roost at the family estate. Living there with her is Magnolia, forty something and never been married, and loves her dogs and gardens. And then there is Carlene, almost fifty divorced, no children, and not to singing career, who left home after high school to pursue this singing career and never looked back. Then we meet Eric Payne, a divorced preacher who was kicked out of the church because his wife left him and never came back, living in the Caldwell estate working as a handyman. And now to forget the mayor, who also owns the Piggly Wiggly grocery story where his mayor office resides.

Mix these five main characters up and you have a story that is sure to make you smile. The three Caldwell girls are as different as can be, in looks and personality. All is going somewhat well, Darlene has the hooks on the mayor and wanting a proposal from him. But then the preacher comes by need room and board and a job and Nolia can’t seem to stay away from him, which irks Darlene. Of course everything and everyone irks Darlene. And we can’t forget Carlene the singer, who is not a singer anymore because of a botched medical procedure done on her throat. Then Carlene decided to come home for a visit, and to the birthday bash in honor of she and her twin sister Darlene’s fiftieth birthday and everything goes haywire.

I’ve only read a few of Angela Hunt’s books, and I don’t know why it’s just been a few. I will sure been on the lookout for all of them in the future. I love, love this one. I always love stories or people growing up in small hometowns, I guess it brings back memories of my own hometown where I grew up. Angela has been crying, smiling, and even laughing as I read this wonderful heartfelt book. We see how the choices Darlene and Carlene made caused hard feeling between the two, and there was clearly forgiveness that was needed. And Nolie shows us how we can be content and happy in even the smallest things.

I highly recommend this awesome contemporary read for your summer reading enjoyment.
