Can Connor’s wife Michele and their daughters ever forgive Connor? Or will the presence of one lonely child destroy everything?

A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS?

Like all the other Karen Kingsbury books, I've ever read, this is well written. It will keep you turning the pages until there are no more to turn. The Books starts out with this Mom and her son. The Mom is A Flight Attendant, and her plane goes down, leaving her son all alone. But in her will, it was one of her last wishes that Max spend 2 weeks with the Father he's never known, but not under the knowledge that it was his father, just a friend of his mother's.

But when Connor get's the phone call from the attorney, Will he be able to Save his marriage, and 'save' his son?

When Michele learns of her husband's unfaithfulness, years down the road, she doesn't know what to do with the information. But one thing she does know, She can't live with a constant reminder of Connor's sin...But will she trust God, and do what she knows is right? 'Or will the presence of one lonely child destroy everything?'
It was a good book, Unlike some of her other books, it doesn't go through Boy girl meet. Fall in Love. Get Married, routine. But it goes through the real life situations of grief, hurt, anger, and healing.

Save My Children by: Emily Wierenga
Back Cover:
Save My Children is the compelling story of a young couple who became mother and father to over 800 abused and neglected children.

Harvey and Elsie Jespersen had one desire: To provide a safe place for any child needing a family.

This is a fictional retelling of the true story of the founders of Bethany Homes for Children. From 1948 to 1992 the Jespersens fostered up to 55 kids at any given time. Their home was a set of old army barracks on 42 acres of Albertan Farmland. Through hard work, determination, and patience, the barracks were transformed into a place of refuge for generations of children. Refusing to take any payment except what parents could afford, Harvey and Elsie depended solely on the power of prayer. Written in honour of Bethany Homes' 60th anniversary, Save My Children tells of love's ability to mend hundreds of broken children through two open hearts.

A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
It's a good book! Heart warming, humbling in fact, to read about a couple who sacrificed everything they had, to do what God called them to do!
Each Chapter is about a different Child that has come through Bethany Homes, and how it affected them. It also shows that when you do what God calls you to do, You won't regret it! You see all the hard work that went into this Home, all the hours of cooking, sewing, tending to the farm...and much more. I have to say, when I was reading it, I did wish the chapters would go on, about each child...you only get a little snippet of what Bethany's did for them! But I recommend Reading this book!!!
