ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Elizabeth Maddrey is a semi-reformed computer geek and homeschooling mother of two who loves a good happily ever after.

Elizabeth Maddrey began writing stories as soon as she could form the letters properly and has never looked back. Though her practical nature and love of computers, math, and organization steered her into computer science at Wheaton College, she always had one or more stories in progress to occupy her free time. This continued through a Master’s program in Software Engineering, several years in the computer industry, teaching programming at the college level, and a Ph.D. in Computer Technology in Education. When she isn’t writing, Elizabeth is a voracious consumer of books and has mastered the art of reading while undertaking just about any other activity.

She lives in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. with her husband and their two incredibly active little boys.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Can pursuit of a blessing become a curse?
June and July and their husbands have spent the last year trying to start a family and now they're desperate for answers.

My Review:
 Infertility to such a sensitive topic yet so relevant to the world we live in. I myself was blessed enough not to ever experience infertility. I have problems carrying a pregnancy to term and usually complications after the pregnancy as well.Hope Deferred deals with the stories of two siblings that just happen to be twins, June&July that all their lives have done things together---probably due to the fact they are twins. But in Hope Deferred, they will have to come to grips with the fact that they each have a different path designed by God.

  The dialogue and lives laid out before me in the book seemed like it was true to life. It had believable characters and that the story centered around infertility more than anything else and the choices that we are sometimes forced to make. This was an okay book, it didn't really appeal to me like I thought it would have.

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from CFBA.
