"Windfalls is a passionate story of motherhood - both tender and tough - that takes an unflinching look at the many choices facing every woman. Young and pregnant, Cerise and Anna make very different decisions about their lives. While teenage Cerise struggles to support herself and her young daughter, Anna finishes college, marries, and later gives birth to two daughters of her own. After the birth of her second child, a tragic accident tears Cerise's life apart, and she loses her already tenuous position in society. As Windfalls progresses, Cerise and Anna seem destined to approach each other, their stories dramatically interwoven. When finally their lives intersect, each woman emerges stronger, inspired by what she sees in the other, changed by what she learns."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

I'm glad I read this book; its messages are just as powerful today as they were 12 years ago. I'm glad, too, that I read it before reading the reviews by librarians, both of which leave few surprises to be discovered by the readers themselves. I believe many women will find this book touches their souls; I hope they'll take the journey of the two protagonists without doing much prior reading of book reviews.
