In all of our lives there are forks in the road. We make choices that completely rip us from the path we are on and with each fork in the road takes us further and further from the life we once had and planned to have. For Marissa, a promising college student trying to be perfect for her family, the first fork comes after finding out she is pregnant and her boyfriend deserts her. She choses to tell no one. The second comes when, after carrying the baby full term, she abandones him in a supermarket parking lot. That leads us to Libby Armstrong who, after her brother-in-law remarries and moves away, loses the nieces and nephew she had been caring for since her sister's death. Broken hearted, the path she settles into is avoiding further pain by leading a quiet, lonely life. She comes to the next fork in her road when she finds the baby and instead of turning him over to the authorities, chooses to keep him. David begins a healing process for her that reconnects her with the world and while she is blossoming, Marissa is wracked with uncertainty and regret. When Marissa's path once again crosses Libby's, she realizes David is her baby. That brings her to another fork in the road and she kidnaps her son. What happens next almost destroys both women and will take you through many twists and turns as more paths are chosen, both right and wrong. For The Love Of David will keep you guessing where the paths these two women choose will take them up to the very last page.
