The Desire Book Review

About the Book

For two years, Allan and Michele have been trying to have a baby. The emotional ride has been taking a toll on their hearts--and their relationship. Michele is obsessed with researching fertility treatments while Allan seems content to spend his time--and their money--on supporting displaced children in Africa. Something's got to give. But they both hope it's not their marriage.

Still, God has a plan for Allan and Michele that they could never have imagined. And all it takes to set it in motion is a change of heart . (Goodreads)

My Review

 I read the previous book in this series so I was curious to read about what would happen next. This book is all about infertility and family helping a young woman who is pregnant and doesn't know what to do. Michele can't get pregnant and Allan can't get Africa out of his mind. I really liked the Africa parts because it's always nice to see another unique part of view. The living conditions of the orphans is obviously awful but I feel like it was explained nicely in the book. Granted actually being there is a different story but I really liked this part of the book. The rest of it was very slow and while there is hope I really just thought there were too many details. Not much happens in the course of the book from start to finish and it was really difficult for me to get into. 
If you enjoy reading books like this or have read the other books in the series, you will probably enjoy this one. 

Three and a half stars. It's well written just slow.
