The Spindle Chair / Shellie Arnold / 300 pgs
The book was well-written and had a compelling story of a couple, Laurie and Pierce, who has to cope with a particularly hard miscarriage that almost took Laurie's life. Laurie becomes pregnant again, and her already distant husband, who is a pastor, becomes more distant as he deals with all the fear he has over the new pregnancy. Meanwhile, new memories of Pierce's life before he was adopted resurfaces, making an already tenuous relationship even more strained. So, the story is about some heavy marital issues, not so much about romance.
Nevertheless, it's a beautiful and hard story to read. I would recommend it with some tissues on hand.
