The Offering

From Wendy Bocian
Title: The Offering
Author: Angela Hunt
A woman and her husband cannot afford to have more children right away so they decide she will become a gestational carrier to earn money. The husband is a soldier and just as the wife is about to give birth to another couple’s baby,the husband is killed while on duty. She gives the baby away, but two years later discovers that she mistakenly and unkowningly gave away her own biological son. She struggles with taking back her child who she does not even know or allowing him to stay with the family who has raised him for two years as their own. This book raises some very interesting and difficult moral issues. I felt slightly disappointed in that after reading the jacket, I was able to predict much of what occured. I would have enjoyed it more had I been completely shocked at the events which took place.
