First a little about my rating. The writing and characterisation was excellent throughout. The first chapter got my attention but it was then lost until about mid way through the book. If I was rating just the second half of the book it would be 5 stars.
The characters of Shelley and Alexandra came to life as they struggled through their difficulties. At times I felt the frustrations and pains of both of them. Hang my head in shame (as a rebellious teenager) I often saw Alexandra's point of view most keenly.
In the early part of the book I really didn't like Shelley but as the story progressed I grew to respect and understand her. While I didn't always share her point of view I saw her as a real person with flaws trying to do the right thing for everyone and loosing her own identity in the process.
Book will appeal to any member of a modern family but especially mothers over the age of 40.

The twists and surprises life unleashed on Shelly in Unexpecting were riveting and had me cheering for her even as all seemed to be falling apart around her. I knew her inner strength and ability to do the right thing would prevail, even when the story became almost unbearably heartbreaking and hope for things to work out well was hard to hang on to. The conflicts Shelly struggled with in her life and in her own mind were so real and easy to relate to and the tough choices she faced forced me to put myself in her position and consider what I would do. I came away from reading Unexpecting with a new appreciation for my own life and the difficulties I face, which are minor compared to Shelly's. I also came away realizing I'm a die-hard Lori Verni-Fogarsi fan and cannot wait for her next book!!!
Shelly and David have almost grown children, having combined their families after divorce from their prior spouses, and marrying each other.
What follows is well developed characters that are easily indentifiable and you can easily relate to all of them.
David is faced with a daughter from a previous relationship he didn't even know about, until the unfortunate time as the mother dies leaving the teenager with no where to turn.
I laughed, I cried, I felt anger, hatred and joy.
What makes Lori Verni-Fogarsi stand out is her totally believable trials and tribulations for this family.
She makes you believe that the story could easily be a true one, and you get such an insight into everyone.
I look forward to more from this author! Perhaps volume 3 of this story?
