Garret Tulane is Darcy Rhode's personal knight in shining armor. Not only did he rescue her from being stranded in the middle of a snowstorm, but he's also given her a place to stay. His close family ties and his caring support create the secure home life she wants to give her unborn child.
That security is an illusion, however. Despite the growing closeness between Darcy and Garret, she knows he has obligations and commitments that don't include her--or another man's baby. But feeling as she does, when the time comes, will she be able to walk away?
Life throws you curveballs all the time. You have the choice: do you duck or do you catch it and make the best of things? How do you handle life when you’re carrying Another Man’s Baby? Read Darcy and Garret’s story and find out.
Ms. Stockham writes poignant novels that make you think. Her characters come alive through her descriptions. You feel like you know them as your own friends rather than characters in the book. The scenes are rich; you feel like you’re a part of their community.
I liked the concept of the unwed mother struggling to make ends meet. This topic is something many women and men can relate to. Darcy doesn’t want to become a mirror image of her mother and is afraid that her life will take the same turns. I give her credit for trying to change her future. I also give her credit for wanting to be self-sufficient.
Although I wanted to yank Garret aside at times for his pigheadedness, I respected him as the hero. Humans make mistakes and he was no exception. Sometimes the best laid plans just don’t pan out. Other times, no amount of planning can foresee every obstacle. Garret made the best of his situation, even when he didn’t want to be apart from Darcy. I liked his strength to see when he was wrong and the courage to change and become the man he needed to be.
If you want a heartfelt novel that will stick with you long after the last page, then I suggest Another Man’s Baby. You won’t regret it! I guarantee you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll think, all while reading about people who could be your friends.
