    Ava has a wedding shop and plans weddings. She can not have chil

    Ava has a wedding shop and plans weddings. She can not have children and is extremely bothered by this. That was the cause of the end of her first marriage. Ava is so bothered by knowing she can't have children that she lets it affect every relationship she has. I didn't like how Ava went for over ten years feeling that she was a failure because she was infertile. When she meets Hilton, her life turns around when she finds out that he can accept adopting children. 

    Hilton was a wonderful character who was attracted to Ava immediately. He had a son, Max, who he was trying to see more often.  Max lived with his mother, Janelle, who wouldn't marry Hilton but wanted his support checks. Hilton was very comfortable with his son and terrific with Marcus. Ava "found" Marcus when he was stealing a purse and she became his friend and started to have him stay at her house often.

    I like the writing style of the author and thought the book was a great read and definitely captures the reader in the story line. It is very thought provoking dealing with infertility and adoption.  I really had never thought about how people felt when they had these problems to overcome.

    The problem I had with A Love Of Her Own was that the author didn't indicate that the characters were African American.  I was at about 20% through on my ereader when I finally figured this out. The character description was really good.  I found the children wonderful little guys.  Even though Ava was pretty negative about her fertility problem, she was a good, kind person and I liked her.  Hilton was terrific.

    This book threw me off. When I purchased this on ebook I expected a quick paced read. But instead I was surprised at how the story plot of the main female and male character dragged along. Over 600 plus pages. I began to actually dread picking up my nook to finish this story line. This book was definitely not reflective of the story lines I have read in the past. The subject matter infertility and adoption are two very important topics that touch the life of many. But these topics as they were addressed in a romance novel left be feeling sad and wondering about the final intent.

    A heart warming story about infertility and how it doesn't have to be the end of a woman's life. I loved this book because it showed how people can look at you differently if you can not bear children. It was a nonstop read.
