After reading Ms. Gable's excellent debut novel The Baby Plan, I was excited to receive a copy of The Mommy Plan. I was not disappointed. The Mommy Plan is filled with such warmth and depth of character, I felt like I knew James, Rachel & Molly personally by the end. I laughed, cried and sighed my way through this book and though I was enormously satisfied with the incredibly touching happy ending, I was also sad to let these characters go. Good thing this book is going on my keeper shelf. It's a fast, easy read that kept me turning pages quickly. If you're looking for a story to touch your heart, fill you with hope and one that offers a peek at the power of love, this is definitely the book for you!Was this review helpful?

Rachel Thompson has hit rock bottom. She's sent to Camp Firefly Wishes and there she meets eight-year-old Molly McClain, and her father, James...and in James and Molly, Rachel finds her heart. A touching story of healing and love. Susan Gable's second book is definitely a keeper!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

In Pennsylvania, ¿Unsinkable¿ Molly McClain believes that her dad psychiatrist Dr. James McClain excessively worries about her to the detriment of his own health. The eight-year-old realizes she has problems having a transplant inside her, but she also needs to do children things without a daddy hen looking over her every action. At Camp Firefly, a special place for children with organ transplants and their parents, she decides that her father needs a wife who would also mommy her, but not like the one who deserted the two of them years ago. <P>Divorced schoolteacher Rachel Thompson has been on a leave of absence since her four-year-old died. She wants to return to the classroom, but her dad and her boss agree she needs to do something else first to insure her grieving has hit a stage where she can work with children. They insist she first test herself at Camp Firefly. Molly chooses Rachel as the star of THE MOMMY PLAN. <P>Don¿t let the inane title fool readers into thinking this is some sort of comic relief. Instead THE MOMMY PLAN is a powerful tale focusing on relationships in which the health of a child supersedes everything else. In this case there are two children involved, obviously Molly, but also Rachel¿s deceased little Daniel. This novel is for readers who appreciate a poignant well written emotional powerhouse and yes there is a romance subplot that fits inside the theme of the story too. <P>Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful?
