Sister Surrogate – LaChelle Weaver
“Three sisters and a baby equal family drama…
Bridgette, Ivy and Savannah have always been close, and as with any sisterhood, it hasn’t been without its challenges, but they always manage to come together in times of need.
When the youngest, Savannah is faced with a life altering illness which threatens her lifelong desire to have children, one of her sisters offer to give her the ultimate gift–to become her surrogate.
While Savannah is overwhelmed with happiness and gratitude about motherhood, not everyone in the family shares her sentiments. The upcoming addition to their family seems to cause discord rather than joy.”
Sister Surrogate is about three sisters and their bond that holds them together through a life changing experience. This book had me on an emotional rollercoaster which I really enjoyed.
Savannah, a 29-year-old newlywed, elementary school principal that is married to Julius, a wonderful and devoted husband. She has a diagnosed that will change everything in her life and family. Julius has unconditional love for his wife.
Ivy, the middle sister who lives in Atlanta, who only thinks about herself. She has a great career that doesn’t involve marriage or children. Ivy in the story steps up to the plate and helps her family out.
Bridgette, is the oldest of the Yancey clan. She is married to Nick and has twin boys, Dylan and Ryan. She is the “bossy one” on the clan and everything goes her way. She owns a bakery, Sugar Rush, that she loves. She lives in North Carolina along with Savannah.
I like how the sisters have a strong foundation and background to help them through this situation. Once you have a solid foundation you can’t be torn down! “Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.”
The theme of the story is family, love, and being loyal. This is an ultimate sacrifice for a family. I could tell the author did her research for the topic of the story.
The characters were realistic. I could relate to all the characters. I cried with them I was happy with them. At one time I thought I was in the story. The characters were well developed.
The setting was realistic. Home is where the heart is. The family remembers that home was North Carolina. The plot had a lot of twists and turns that were unexpected. Their Mother instilled a lot into the three sisters. Always remembering what mother said or did and they followed suit.
This story could easily become a Lifetime Movie and I would watch it. Thanks for making this a realistic story about a sisterly bond that their parents instilled great values and morals in.
I will be reading more by this author. I give this book 5 stars.
