Hoping for Hope
Within a week of her fiftieth birthday, Liddy Claver loses her teaching job and learns that her husband is having an affair with one of her friends. But all that pales to the discovery that she is not, as she had thought, menopausal, but instead in the third trimester of pregnancy. Mustering her courage, Liddy must reconcile the baby’s impending arrival and its ramifications for the husband she loves (but hasn’t slept with in five years), to her three grown children, and above all, herself.Nearly everyone is quick to offer an opinion, but no one is willing to consider hers. And Liddy, now six months pregnant, sets off on a journey that begins in sorrow and confusion and ends quite perfectly - with Hope.
