Bonnie joins with a group of friends to form a secret network matching the unwanted babies with childless families. Heedless of the sheriff 's warnings, the women proudly continue their blessed work.

NOT an attention getter

I did not like this book. I listened to the first 30 minutes or so and it didnt do anything for me. It took me 2 months to finish it. I figured if I paid for it, I may as well listen to it. I think it was supposed to make you feel all warm and fuzzy but it didnt do it for me.
