There was a good message throughout this story. The author at the end stated it well: "every child is born perfect for God's plans and purposes. . . sometimes we are called to pray not for the healing of the child, but for the healing of the heart of man."

This is book two in this series and to fully appreciate Angelica and Antonio Perez and their struggles through their marriage, you need to read how they got where they are at, by reading book one, "The Winds of Sonoma'. This is a young couple who have a deep love and commitment to each other, but the background of each brings a little conflict into their marriage, along with the news that their firstborn baby could possibly have health concerns. I really appreciated Antonio's perspective on this little unborn chid and his patience and understanding with his wife, Angelica.

One of my favorite quotes from this story is what Angelica will finally come to realize about her baby. "She had been so focused on the fact that her world was not as she wanted it, she had been unable to see that her world was as God had allowed it." She will eventually turn her face towards heaven and "thank Him for the life He had given her, exactly as it was. Asking His forgiveness for her blindness." Appreciated how the author handled this very hard topic of knowing your child might not be like all the other children, and being able to love and be content with God's perfect plan. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0800730496, Paperback)

From the award-winning author of The Winds of Sonoma comes this compelling second installment in the Regalo Grande series. When privileged lawyer Angelica Amante marries a handsome but illiterate Mexican stableman against her parents' wishes, she thought their happiness could overcome any hurdle. But their challenges are only beginning. Prenatal tests show troubling information about Angelica's expected baby. Her husband's fledgling landscape business is struggling. And Angelica's lonely, divorced boss takes an interest in her work-too much of an interest. Can the power of love--and prayer--bring Angelica and Antonio to a new place of acceptance and happiness? Romance readers will delight in this story of God's sovereignty, the value of human life, and the importance of commitment.
