For two years, Allan and Michele have been trying to have a baby. The emotional ride has been taking a toll on their hearts--and their relationship.
Michele is obsessed with researching fertility treatments while Allan seems content to spend his time--and their money--on supporting displaced children in Africa. Something's got to give.
But they both hope it's not their marriage. Still, God has a plan for Allan and Michele that they could never have imagined. And all it takes to set it in motion is a change of heart.....
Cafe Lily's Review:
Third book in The Restoration Series, The Desire continues the story of the Anderson family. We meet up again with familiar characters from past books, as well as some new ones.
This story focuses mainly on Allan and Michele, and their struggle with infertility. This book was not my favorite in the series. I preferred the first and second book to this one, but it was still worth the read.
As with the other books in this series, The Desire demonstrates flawed characters who work through their trials. Conflict resolution in marriage is a repeating theme in each of the books. This series is reminding me in many ways of the Baxter family, made popular by Karen Kingsbury.
The Anderson family is a close-knit group, who love God and each other. They work through trials and challenges, while staying connected to each other.
Because I am such a huge fan of Dan Walsh, I look forward to seeing what he offers in the book to follow this one.
