Cody and Nikki Somers are straining to keep their marriage together after multiple miscarriages and the accident that took the life of their unborn child, who was being carried by Nikki's sister. Now, Cody's quest to find and arrest the drunk driver responsible borders on revenge, and his desire to adopt a boy leaves Nikki confused and threatened. It's difficult to bond with these characters, who are bogged down by grief and working out their problems in marriage counseling, but Brenda Mott's The Chosen Child (3) has a satisfying payoff.
