With a new job, a
husband she adores, and a life full of friends, Kit’s life seems pretty
much perfect—well, aside from the fact that her husband is in school and
way too busy for Kit’s liking. And of course she’s still dealing with
the fall-out from her adoptive parents’ divorce.
But when Kit
learns that her biological mother wants to meet her, she’s not sure how
to react. What good could possibly come from getting to know someone who
left you in a dumpster to die?
Exquisitely written and full of
heart, Choosing Charity is a can’t-miss read that’s sure to remind you
why Christlike love is the greatest virtue of all.
I'm not sure what to say about this one that I haven't already said about the previous two, Finding Faith and Having Hope.
This book provides a great ending to a series that I have enjoyed very
much. I hate to say goodbye to Kit and her family. I've enjoyed getting
to know them and empathizing with their struggles. In this book, Kit
struggles with her adopted parents divorce, but in addition to that is
the shock of her birth mother suddenly wanting to see her.
Once again, Ferran creates a
believable and tender story of love and family and forgiveness. The
struggles that Kit goes through in this book are truly heart-wrenching.
I found myself angry and sympathetic in turns. The characters just felt
so real to me as did the settings and storyline. The strength of this
series though is the characters and their choices and struggles. Not
only is the book full of heart but plenty of humor as well. There is
religious doctrine included in this book (Kit is a Mormon, a member of
the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints), but it flows so well
and is such an integral part of the story. I highly recommend this
series to those who enjoy stories with a lot of heart.
