Stealing Jenny by Ellen Gable
All Jenny Callahan wants is one more baby to hold in her arms. And now, after suffering three miscarriages, Jenny and her husband, Tom, are expecting their sixth child.
Denise Kramer, their neighbor, wants a child herself. Since she's unable to conceive and the adoption agency won't allow her to adopt a child, Denise devises a plan to finally get a child - putting Jenny and her unborn baby in danger and fighting for their lives.
The main characters in 'Stealing Jenny' are Catholics, and since I'm not a Catholic, some of the things they do I don't agree with. I knew this before reading 'Stealing Jenny' and it doesn't affect my view of the book.
The story was really good and very easy to read. It reminded me of a movie I saw on Lifetime, but only slightly. The characters were intriguing and I particularly liked how throughout the story there were flashbacks that showed events from the characters' pasts - this helped me understand the story better.
The few things I didn't like was when Tom said 'oh my ***' after learning that Jenny, his wife, had been taken (I think this was said other times as well) and when obscenities were said including the D word.
Overall, I really enjoyed 'Stealing Jenny', but only recommend it to mature audiences.
