Teresa is my favorite character! She has a great testimony and shares it. This is my favorite quote, "I don't want my testimony to be all about what God saved me from. I want a testimony of what He has done in me since then. What He saved me to. Does that make sense? I'm saved, and that's all I need,but it's just the beginning of what He is doing in me." ~Teresa Cooper
Baggage Claim is a good Christian story that is exciting, adventurous, and romantic and I highly recommend getting your copy ASAP!
“No one is promised a normal family, dear, and we all grow up anyhow.”
This is a story of being lost and found in love and in faith. Teresa Cooper remakes herself from abuse victim to "nanny" of four small kids as well as a young father who also needs a bit of a nanny. Ben Taylor was widowed at 24 because of a drunk driver. As the only child adopted by a loving couple, he is beginning to build a life as an adult and not finding it easy struggling with school, work and his kids.He gets discouraged as he finds his biological mother's family traumatized by the secret of his birth, and part of his road to maturity is finding some more pieces of his puzzle with the journey to his biological father: an artist in the rural area of Michigan who had no idea he existed!
And then Ben stumbles upon a situation at work that might actually take all of this away.
Set in Northern Illinois and the Upper end of Michigan, Swanson has developed a story that we will relate to as much as it might confound us. Can someone be manipulated as Ben was? Can he ever have peace around his losses? Will he be a good father? Will Teresa come out of hiding? How will this truly blended family save each other?
I loved this funny, smart and thoughtful book. I liked how faith, or lack of it, is just a part of the story in a world that might discourage that. I live how each child has a separate personality and how Teresa, and later Jonah, recognize it since they interact more closely with them. And, although you are supposed to not like the "bad guys", even they are well drawn.
When I finished this book very early this morning,I realized I will miss these people....and am eagerly awaiting Swanson's next book. Highly recommended.
With a single father of four to a nanny with her own secrets to insurance fraud, this book takes the reader on a veritable rollercoaster of emotions. I could not help but get drawn into the story. I thoroughly recommend this book!
I loved the characters and the setting, especially the Upper Peninsula of Michigan which I have never been to. The prologue threw me off a little bit since it gave the background story for the nanny, Teresa. She is an important part of the story, but most of it is really about Ben, the man whose children she takes charge of (and boy, does she take charge!). I really enjoyed the suspenseful part of it, especially with the babysitter Phoebe who deserves a book of her own. All in all, I would recommend this book and I look forward to reading future sequels.
