Building a family...
En route to the Double T Orphanage to work on its expansion, carpenter Chip Evans and Caroline Hunt discover two orphaned children–and become their caregivers. But Chip's determined not to let himself get too attached to the children who just lost their widowed father…or to the lovely woman helping him care for them. Especially since Callie and the little ones just don't fit into his detailed plans for the future.
Callie can't help but fall in love with the orphans, and despite her better judgment, she's falling for Chip, too. Her dreams of being a wife and mother were not quite like this. But Callie believes a plan bigger than Chip's brought them all together…and now she just has to help him see it, too.

Her Motherhood Wish is a wonderful story! Callie embraces life and Chip is a "bit too regimented”, which leads to an engaging and entertaining journey. I loved their interactions with each other and the children at the Double T Orphanage, and I also enjoyed revisiting several beloved characters from Gwyn’s earlier books. Historical tidbits, inspirational messages, and tender romance are woven together to create a most delightful tale! I received a complimentary copy of this book. No review was required, and all thoughts expressed are my own.
What if the carefully laid out plans for your life aren't what God's perfect plan is for you? That's what Chip Evans & Callie Hunt discover in this delightfully charming story! Some may call it happenstance, but I call it God's will that Chip & Callie come across two recently abandoned children on their way to the Double T Orphanage. When they discover the reason these two are alone, they know the perfect place to bring them to! Thus begins the journey that binds all of their lives together! I do admire Chip for his determination to stick to his life plan, but at the same token, even he admits he didn't consult God in the first place! Callie had some heartbreaking news as a child, God shows her in the end that He never sees her as broken. Five year old Jasper & two year old Ruby are delightful additions, grief stricken at first, but I loved watching them bloom like flowers in the end! Throw in a little suspense, great secondary characters, and you got yourself a tale of romance, discovering what matters the most, lives bound together by love, and God's perfect plan coming about in many surprising ways! Here's a few snippets I enjoyed; page 38 where Callie & Chip are talking to each other: Callie jerked her head up. “The Good Book says that 'all things work together for good to them that love God.' I firmly believe that. Don't you?” (Chip) “I believe God can bring good out of bad, but He doesn't promise that life will be easy.” (Callie) “No, but He does promise to be with us no matter what comes our way. That's a promise that fills me with hope.” * I received a complimentary copy from the author. No favorable review was required and all opinions expressed here are strictly my own. *
Her Motherhood Wish is another fun read by Keli Gwyn. On the way to work at the Double T Orphanage, Chip Evans and Caroline "Callie" Hunt, find two newly orphaned children, Ruby and Jasper. Not only did they find them, they became their caretakers! Chop does not want to get too close to Callie or the children because he doesn't want to mess up his future plans. On the other hand, Callie has fallen for the children......and Chip! How is that suppose to for into her own plans? Her Motherhood Wish is one of the reasons Keli Gwyn is among my favorite authors. I thought Chip could be infuriating to me and I felt like he needed some good sense knocked into him. I wanted to scream at him and say, "Look what you have right in front of you!" But then he shows his soft side and I see why sweet Callie was falling for him. I thought this book was great. There was a little mystery and suspense to make this sweet and clean story a perfect mix. Highly recommended. 5 plus stars I received this book from the author, but was not required to write a review. This review is of my opinion
