The Surrogate (Judith Henry Wall)

One of my TBR books that I read on vacation. Not bad, but not great. It definitely kept my interest though there were times when I was wondering if the dialogue (both internal and external) could have been anymore contrived. Since I have an interest in IF, adoption and other sorts of issues this book appealed to me. I was surprised to find a fairly harsh assessment of the state of politics and the way the religious right is attempting to rule the nation. The reader's guide at the end of the book indicated the author had a real person in mind when crafting one of the big villains, and I can't wait to do some more research to find out who she might be modeling.

Overall, I'd give it a C.
