ABOUT THE BOOK
Three women. One secret.
Megan doesn’t want to be bitter. But it’s hard not to be when her star teenage piano student accidentally gets pregnant. Megan’s done everything right – married the man she loves and read the parenting books. Yet after six years of insanity-inducing hormone drugs and desperate prayers, all she has to show for her efforts are enough negative pregnancy tests to fill a bassinet.
Christina has been off birth control for more than a year – she just hasn’t told her husband. Now infertility threatens to rip their already strained marriage apart. He’s uncertain about fatherhood, but Christina will do anything to be a mother.
Kyra, the poverty-stricken mother of a precocious three-year-old, is shocked to struggle with secondary infertility. A baby is priceless, but try telling that to those demanding payment for the chance at motherhood.
When a school book drive brings the three women together, their uncomfortable secrets soon come to light. Can they overcome their heartache together, or will they allow their struggles to tear them apart?

Chasing Someday is ALL about the characters …
I think at some point or another, I identified with each of these women. Megan – she has gone through this for so many years that she is now an open book. Though I have never struggled with infertility, after the birth of my Minion One, I became that open book. Me … the shy, withdrawn, socially awkward, book-obsessed introvert.
Then there is Christina. She is more of the embarrassed, shy side like me. She is scared to say “infertility”, let alone think it.
And then there is Kyra. I loved her because of Sophie. Sweet, innocent, three-year-old logic Sophie. She reminded me most of Minion One, melting my heart. Kyra is the one who has the beautiful child, yet struggles with infertility as she and her husband try to conceive a second child. She struggles with remembering that she already has a blessing in Sophie. After Minion One was born, we decided we wanted another child and I had to remind myself a few times when I got impatient that we already had one incredible blessing.

Tiffany Williams can seriously narrate!
The narration in Chasing Someday was great. I especially loved how Tiffany Williams did a child’s voice for Sophie. Her tones changed just enough so that it was easy to tell who was speaking, something I appreciate a great deal in an audio narrator. And I already knew I loved her narration style from Lindzee’s No Match for Love series.
I won’t lie …
At times, Chasing Someday was a very hard book to read. I cried happy tears at times, bawled like a psychopathic crazy woman at others, but thoroughly enjoyed it all. Could I have read this before Minion One or Minion Two were born? I’m not sure. I spent so many moments during reading this book, thanking God for my two healthy babies.
Final Answer for Chasing Someday?
I highly recommend this book but be prepared for the ugly cry. This book will tear you up and leave you utterly emotionally exhausted. But it will be so worth it. 5 stars, all the way!
