THE SURROGATES by Consuella Harris


Consuella Harris
(from Amazon)
The deaths of two prominent businessmen on the same day of heart attacks is at first declared to be of natural causes. No investigation happens until a former law clerk hires an investigator to check into these murders, and the connection to the Lake Shore Parenting Group.

Three women became surrogate mothers through this group and their children were adopted by five couples. Once the information about their births is revealed to them, it sets in motion events none had anticipated.

The investigation into these families, their lives, and those behind the events changes everything they believe. Yet, there is still a murderer on the loose, unless the intrepid investigator can bring that person to justice.

There are various opinions and emotions about the subject of surrogacy.  Everyone has had a different childhood, teenage years and adulthood.  That would have an affect on the way a person would feel about surrogacy.I would imagine if you wanted a baby bad enough and couldn't have one, for some reason, another woman carrying a child for  you would be wonderful, bringing happiness.  I can see that point of view, but what about all those children out there that need good homes and lots of love.?  Those children who have no one.? Some people wonder how these surrogate mothers can be so generous and kind as to carry a baby for a couple that can't conceive.  In some cases it may be generous and out of love.  Then there are those who women may just be wanting monetary compensation for the nine months she's carrying the baby.I suppose that's rather cynical but it does happen. I know that the line on this subject is neither white or black but gray.  People are complicated and have their own reasons for why they do what they do.  The majority of people never even think about it.  Unless it is affecting them, what's the problem?
 In this book we have three women who have decided to be surrogate mothers.  The surrogate is not the only one who is affected by the decisions.  There are the babies, the family that is looking for a surrogate, the surrogate herself, and anyone connected to the surrogate and the family.  It's a big, important subject that should take a lot of consideration before entering into an agreement.  The author wrote an informative, thought provoking and emotional book.  This is a different subject from most books.  Interesting indeed.

I was given a complimentary copy of THE SURROGATES from the author, Consuella Harris and Bostick Communications for my view of the book.  No other compensation took place.

I would give this book 4 STARS.
