Overview

Foreign correspondent Bronson Bailey, 49 years old, doesn't know what's wrong with him. Is he burnt out by his many years reporting human rights abuses? Is he simply lonely? Georgine Nichols, a decade younger, knows she's lonely-but it's a child she longs for, not a husband. Unable to have children of her own, George has long since given up hope of having a family, until she considers adoption as a single mother. In this tender, moving story, a little girl in a Chinese orphanage-a child whose very existence is a miracle-teaches them both the life-changing power of love.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Hicks's (Snow Swan, Multnomah, 1997) sweet and gentle novel features Georgine Nichols, a woman who wants nothing more than to settle down and have a family. Unfortunately, she is unable to bear children, which causes the breakup of her marriage. After meeting the interesting and attractive journalist Bronson Bailey, who shares her love of God, Georgine falls deeply in love. There is only one problem: Bronson isn't interested in children. When Georgine hears of the possibility of adopting a little girl from China, she decides to do so as a single parent, though it may jeopardize her future with Bronson. Here the romance takes a back seat to Georgine's desperate need for a child, but most readers will be too caught up in the fascinating details on overseas adoptions to care that Georgine's romantic life gets pushed aside. Recommended.
