This is a pure illustration for all the women in the world who are facing infertility, a must read story by Ms Griffin. Ava is faced to come to terms with this major issue when the man of her future, Hilton White, comes into her life. As this relationship develops, she is forced to come to grips with dealing with her problem. The supporting characters of this story helps tremendously, finally allowing Ava to not only gain the courage to accept her infertility but finds the blessing of love brings her alot more than she even imagined. We had not heard from Bettye Griffin since "At Long Last Love", and the wait was well worth it as she puts her heart into this special story. Thanks for showing us the courage this woman endures by fighting the issues of infertility.

A Love of Her Own...what a great surprise. This story evoked such powerful emotions of love, heartache, regret, hope and fullness of life.

Hilton a man of integrity and financial means was drawn to Ava because of her pure honesty and ability to love unconditionally. While he hides his wealth he uncovers the rest of his inner soul to Ava. He opens up about his son and Baby momma drama and how he wants a stronger relationship with his own son.

Ava is a divorced woman due to her inability to have children; she longed for a love of her very own. She runs from love and relationships since she's unable to bear children. While running from love, she runs into Marcus a child that is walking on the wrong side of the law but just needs love and guidance to get his life back on the right track. Ava forms a strong emotional bond with this child and begins to treat him like her very own. She also can't seem to run from Hilton, a man that wants to get to know her and the woman he thinks she is. Ava and Hilton go on a journey of taking parts and making it into a whole.

The story moves at the perfect pace and pitch. Everything in the story has purpose and meaning and draws you into imperfect lives willing to forgive and love at all costs. That is a lesson in this story that I hope every reader experiences. If you believe there is nothing better than love, this story was tailored made for you.

This book is different. It is not your typical boy meets girl, couple meets opposition, break up/make up type book. And that's exactly why I chose it. I've grown tired of the same predictable, boring stories being told over and over again. Here, the author thought outside of the box and delivered a story that is genuine, compelling and thought provoking. Had Ms. Griffin further explored a few of the plot points (such as the poverty/homelessness, rape/disease, weight/isolation, and sexuality vs. loneliness) this could have been an even better novel. This is the story of what it's like to find love. After being lost, hopeless and alone. Love that looks so much different than you thought it would, so much different than society says it should. Real Love.

This book was very touching to me. T o know there are women out ther who desperatly want to be mothers and are not able to have them because of medical reasons is so sad to me. This book shows you the things these women go through emotionally when seeing other women with children. There are a few men out there(that I have NO respect for) that will only accept having a child from their blood and will not even consider an alternative. Then Mrs. Griffin tells you about these women who are able to give birth who seem to not care for their child. Ava Maxwell is a wonderful woman that can not have children of her own but takes in a boy off the street and makes him her own. Hilton White is an honorable man who excepts Ava and the little boy and his sister as his family. Kudos to Mrs. Griffin for an excellent story that really moved me.

This story was so wonderfully written, I love every minute of it. I liked the way Ava and Marcus met the way Ava could see what Marcus needed right away , and Marcus what a cute little boy . I loved him he was so sweet and all he wanted to do was be a little boy. Hilton and Max, Hilton was a wonderful character too the way he took to Marcus and the way he fought for his son Max I loved him for it. I loved the way Hilton loved Ava for what they could be and not what the could not have. This is my 3rd book written by this author and I have loved them all this certainly will not be my last.

I was annoyed a little ways into this book when the main character drove to the mall even though a major aspect of the plotline was that her car broke down, was in the shop, and she had no access to it. When another character "leaned in for a kiss" during a phone call, I got frustrated enough that I gave up. I hope that other readers are more forgiving than I am. Good luck.

This book touched me in a very personal way. I can releate to the storyline regarding not being able to have children. I felt Ava's pain and her warm love she had for children. I feel "God" has a plan for everyone and not everyone is inteneded to have children. I loved the way Hilton responded to the situation. It takes a very special man to love a women regardless if she can't bear children. I could hardly put the book down. I truely enjoyed every page. This is a must read.
