Finding Sarah, Finding Me (A Birth Mother’s Story)

Title:  Finding Sarah, Finding Me (A Birth Mother’s Story)
Author:  Christine Lindsay
Pages:  233
Year:  2016
Publisher:  Whitefire Publishing
My rating is 5 stars.
So far in 2016 I have read many books.  Most of them have been good and a few haven’t, but that doesn’t diminish my love of reading.  When the author asked me to read and review this book, having read her fictional stories, I jumped at the opportunity.  What I hadn’t counted on was such a transparent, heartfelt, true story about the many different roads traveled by Christine in her life. 
In the heart-gripping hope-filled book, Christine shares her life over a couple of decades, looking for the daughter she gave up for adoption and coming face-to-face with her own heart.  It didn’t matter that I had never experienced this road; I was drawn in by the desire of a birth mother wanting to meet her daughter as an adult.  What I think Christine encountered was truly something she never expected on her journey and that was God’s plan and timing for the encounter.
It is hard to put into words really what I read in the book.  It’s a very open look into a woman’s life and her honesty is truly amazing.  Christine puts it all out on the table for readers to view and see not just what people went through, but ultimately what God was working in many hearts.  I think of the Scriptures that tell us He knows the number of hairs on our heads or has our names engraved on the palm of His hand.  He knows us so well and He is faithful.  Christine knows even deeper how God can truly work all things for good.  It’s true that life doesn’t look like what Christine thought it would, but when she looks back and sees what God did and is doing.  Wow!
All proceeds for the book are going to Women and Children’s Initiative with GAIN.  Please read this amazing testimony and share the hope within the pages with any of your family or friends.

This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
