Image of When You Least Expect It: A Novel

This book is told in alternating, first-person narratives from the perspectives of characters readers will root for. Strong character development, especially in relation to Lainey, shines when tackling the timely topics of infertility, adoption and unwanted pregnancies.

India and Jeremy Halloway are young, successful and anxious to begin a family. After failed IVF treatments, adoption appears to be their only option. Twenty-year-old Lainey Walker is homeless and pregnant. Adoption, as well as having her housing and medical expenses paid for, seems like a viable option. She believes India and Jeremy would be perfect parents for her child. But when the baby arrives, no one is prepared for what happens. (BANTAM, Jul., 336 pp., $15.00)
