I'm excited to be today's stop for the Choosing Charity blog tour!
Kit Matthews Bridger is loving her life. She just recently got married to the love of her life, Adam Bridger, she's graduated and is working for a CPA. She's not sure that she's seeing her husband enough and she's still getting used to her parents being divorced. Things are pretty great all the way around and then one day she gets a letter in the mail from an attorney. She knows that nothing good ever comes from attorneys offices in the mail but reluctantly opens it to find a request from a woman claiming to be her biological mother to get DNA tested to see if they really are related. This is kind of exciting/scary for Kit, mainly because as a newborn she was thrown away by her biological mother. Kit has always wondered why and hardly dares to hope she might now find out the reason. She's tested and it's determined that she is the daughter of Alicia, who now wants to meet Kit. She knows that her "real" parents are the Matthews, but also knows that part of her is missing, so she determines to go. Unfortunately things don't work out as we would want them to and Alicia is aloof and rude to Kit, so Kit decides she wants nothing more to do with her and walks out, but the request Alicia made haunts her and Kit knows she needs to pray about it. Will Kit be able to act on the answer to her prayer even if it means having Alicia in her life permanently?
I loved this book, it was my favorite books of the three. Kit seemed like a real person that I "know" and she had challenges that any person could have. I loved how the whole tone of the book was forgiveness, for yourself and for others. I loved the ending, it made me cry.
Author Bio: Terri Ferran grew up in a small Colorado town that offered little in the way of entertainment. She escaped through reading (and later on a Continental Trailways bus), and although the town didn't have a library, she eagerly anticipated the coming of the Bookmobile and would check out stacks of books at a time.
She moved to Utah as a high school senior where she joined the LDS Church and met her husband, Tod. She dreamed of being a writer but took the safe route of becoming a CPA. She finally got brave enough to quit working in the world of numbers to pursue her dream of writing and also to spend more time with her children. Her first book, Finding Faith was published in 2007 and she is excited to be living her dream of writing in real life.
Terri still loves to read, but she can usually be found writing, doing laundry, dishes, running errands, napping, eating chocolate, or exercising (not necessarily in that order).
