Series: Memory House Series, #4
Expected publication: March 1st 2016 by Bent Pine Publishing
When young Cheryl Ann leaves home, she thinks her path is straight…until she’s forced to make a choice she could never have imagined. The man in her life makes it clear: either pick your baby or pick me, he says. Suddenly, Cheryl finds herself at a crossroads. She makes a decision that will change her life forever, and that decision causes a chain of events that will lead Cheryl to a completely unexpected place.
Baby Girl is a mother’s story. It’s about the greatest sacrifice a mother can make when she wants only the best for her child. It’s about falling in and out of love, of losing and finding one’s self. It’s about the perilous journey from passionate young love to happy true love and understanding the differences between the two.
Baby Girl is a book that readers won’t want to miss because it’s a story they won’t forget.
From the Author: This book is based on a true story…a story that is heartbreaking at times but will leave readers with a better understanding of what a woman will do to protect her child. When I first heard this birth mother’s story I was touched by it, so much so that I needed to know more. When I knew more, I knew I needed to write my novel. The result is Baby Girl.
My thoughts about Baby Girl ~~
Bette has written another beautiful, emotional story. I fall in love with every book and character she creates. The amazing Ophelia is once again handing out her love, wisdom, and dandelion tea to the people who need her support and advice. A trip back to Memory House is always a wonderful thing.
Cheryl Ann has had her share of ups and downs, love and heartache. Her biggest heartache was having to give up her baby girl, all for love. I can't even imagine!
'She was forever, permanently and irrevocably, gone from my life, but I knew even then she would never be gone from my heart.'
Cheryl Ann goes through a lot in her life and comes out a strong, independent woman, no thanks to the men in her life. It was tough watching her live through the tough times. I felt like she was a friend that I couldn't help, she just needed to figure it out on her own. I was sad right along with her but also felt the love that she found in her friends.
Baby Girl is another wonderful story in the Memory House series. All of the stories are warm, beautifully written glimpses into the lives of the people that Bette has created. I love every visit I get to take back to Memory House.
