A Book Review

I'm going to try my first book review since the dreaded book reports from high school. As I mentioned yesterday I have a friend who wrote an autobiographical book.

This is a story of love for family and motherhood, loss of life and faith. After the grief of losing a premature baby, the author Marion and her husband look into adoption of a hard to place child. Instead of one, they adopted two brothers who had been taken from their home because of parental neglect.

This is the family's story. The good times and the bad. They went from a family of two parents, two boys and a girl to a family of two parents, four boys and a girl. And Marion found her faith again.

This is a wonderful story, I actually read it in a weekend. I couldn't put it down. I kept wanting to know more about the boys, their background and their future.

I hope I've been able to pique your interest. I highly recommend this book. It's called Hard to Place and the author is Marion Goldstein, who I have known since 1st grade. After high school, we went our separate ways and reunited about 7 years ago at our grammar school reunion.

Sounds like a good read. I will have Beck look for it for me.
